Calling all artists from across the world and all walks of life! We are thrilled to announce the Animated AR Portraits Open Call, organized by Mai Animation VZW in collaboration with Animated W/World and Film Fest Gent. At this landmark edition of Film Fest Gent, we aim to celebrate the power of animation and the diverse voices that enrich the creative landscape. As a tribute to this momentous occasion, we are selecting 50 outstanding portraits to showcase a wide range of diversity and individual artistic expression. Are you in?

Selected artists will have the opportunity to exhibit their animated self-portraits as part of an AR art walk through the city of Ghent and an exhibition during Film Fest Gent (10-21 of october 2023). The self portraits will be distributed on posters all over the city of Ghent. When the poster is scanned by a mobile device, the artwork comes alive through AR technology. Your work will be viewed by a diverse audience of art enthusiasts, industry professionals, and film lovers.
