The contest for the Delphic Art Movie Award is hosted by the International Delphic Council and shows short documentaries (max. duration: 10 min) about the fascination of arts and cultures. Two aspects are equally important: 1) contemporary art and its protagonists 2) the preservation of cultural heritage. Important questions are: How can the understanding of contemporary art be encouraged? In which way is cultural heritage preserved and passed on? To convey the fascination, which emanates from art and connected to it the creative process is the special challenge of the contest. Besides artistic achievements, also social cultural aspects can come to the fore. The contest’s framework is set by six categories and their disciplines, which represent contemporary or traditional aspects. Acoustic Arts, Performing Arts, Lingual Arts, Visual Arts, Social Arts and Ecological Arts. The films should document, inform and inspire. In addition, the films should be able to get a large audience, which isn’t informed over-average, enthusiastic about art and culture in their manifold manifestations. Every artistic field is included, from the contemporary avant-garde to the preservation of traditions and the cultural heritage. Also welcome are short versions of full length documentaries!
