Soundstripes 4

Open call for short silent films to be live scored by an ensemble of improvising musicians.

The fourth edition of Soundstripes is taking place on Sunday 9th June at The Rex, Elland, 12:30-1:30pm (doors at 12:00pm) 

Soundstripes is an eclectic screening of short silent films, all live scored by a band of improvising musicians. This special screening for Welland Festival brings together early 20th century silent film with contemporary artists' films, selected and curated in response to the Welland 2019 theme of ‘Move Well, Live Well’.


Films should be under 10 minutes duration and without a soundtrack (can be submitted with existing soundtrack to be muted). All types of film and animation will be considered from narrative to abstract, surreal to documentary. We encourage submissions which interpret the theme ‘Move Well, Live Well’ creatively and flexibly, for example: 

  • films centring movement generally
  • dance films
  • films connecting in some way with issues around mental/physical health
  • comedy/uplifting films that leave the audience with a sense of wellbeing

Films not explicitly fitting these themes are also welcome.

Soundstripes is a co-organised by Jonny Best, Alice Bradshaw & Vanessa Haley and was established in Huddersfield in 2017.
