Call to Artis: Cash Award: “Sukkahwood” 2018

“Sukkahwood” Outdoor temporary dwelling installation exhibition.
Inwood Hill Park, New York, NY
Sunday, September 16, 2018

After a smashing first year, Sukkahwood is pleased to once again invite artists and designers to re-imagine a “Sukkah” and be part of the “Sukkahwood” outdoor exhibition of temporary dwelling installations.

Sukkahwood’s values of inclusion are universal and seek to bring together people from all walks of life. Sukkahwood is about re-thinking an essential Jewish tradition through unique and out-of-the-box thinking, using materials with a focus on sustainability and affordability, and connecting to our beautiful New York City parks.

Curator: The entries will be curated by Goldie Gross. She is a Brooklyn-based artist  and curator from Crown Heights. She has curated Natural Instincts for the Jewish Art Salon, and is currently curating The Invisible Jew and co-curating POW!!! Jewish Comic Art and Influence. She co-produced the Jewish Art Salon’s exhibition Jerusalem Between Heaven And Earth at the Jerusalem Biennale 2017, curated by Ori Z. Soltes.

Awards: Cash prizes up to $1500 will be awarded at the event for first, second and third place.
Stipend: Each participant will receive a $500 stipend.

This event will be widely publicized via print and digital news outlets.

We are looking for personal, innovative, imaginative and compelling stories that are well told. We want passionate filmmakers with a fresh point of view, traditional story tellers who dig deep to find the truth and courageous, new visionaries coming to filmmaking for the first time. We are not overly hung up on when the movies were made or if they are premiers. We just want to share good work with a thoughtful audience that wants to see your work.

Now in its sixth year, YoFiFest returns November 2-8 2018 to celebrate moving pictures, the people who make them and the people who watch them. We’re all about audiences and filmmakers connecting so in addition to lots of great movies, hands on workshops and our mini film school, we have plenty of parties, networking events, Q&As, meet and mingles, and other social opportunities to engage with your fans and fellow filmmakers.

We’ve been ranked as one of the top 100 best reviewed film festivals by filmmakers on Film Freeway (twice) and MovieMaker Magazine says “what stood out at YoFiFest 2017 was the organizers’ obvious respect for the people who craft cinema and video.” YoFiFest was awarded the Best of Westchester’s Best New Film Festival and recently named one of 2016’s 39 Most Notable Events by Westchester Magazine. We were also named as one of the top 10 hippest things about Yonkers in 2015 when Yonkers was dubbed Hippest Town by lohud.com/The Journal News.

YoFiFest is Your Film Festival! Its easy to get to, fun to hang out at and not to be missed!
