Aavistus Festival is an international biennial of audiovisual art and VJ culture that will be held for the third time on 3–6 October 2024.
The festival is looking for VJ performances, audiovisual live performances, media artworks, installations, workshops, talks and children's programme to be presented at its venues Valkoinen Sali, WHS Teatteri Union and Helsinki City Museum in Helsinki, Finland.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

2. Works with a strong & interesting idea, concept or message.
3. Diversity in artworks: original ideas, styles and (innovative) techniques.
1. You may only submit one entry per each category, meaning maximum 6 entries in total.
2. Submissions are free of charge.
3. The festival will pay a fee per each selected performance/artwork. The fee will be a minimum of 50-200 €, depending on type of work (see category-specific information below). The final amount will be confirmed based on grants and ticket sales. Taxes and other deductions apply. Aavistus Festival ry does not cover the travel or accommodation costs.
4. The artist is responsible for following best practices in terms of copyright.
The projection mapping work will be created beforehand based on the architectural drawings of the Helsinki City Museum facade, provided to you by Aavistus Festival. You are not expected to submit a work already mapped to the facade in the open call. You will have a few hours to set up your work on 3rd or 4th October, after which it should run independently on 5th October. The projection is done through a window, so you'll be working and keeping your equipment safely indoors. The festival will provide the video projector(s). The work may include audio.
Minimum fee for a projection mapped work: 150 €
Photos and drawings (not required to use for the open call): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1PQe9LWDpMYYN3el-nbAzrRUA0oqpUvE2
This form is for projection mapping works only. See submission forms for VJ performances, audiovisual live performances, artworks, workshops, presentations and children's programme at www.aavistusfestival.fi/open-call
