Artists’ call out for film inspired art trail
‘Lights, Camera…Paint’

Worcester Film Festival and Artists Clubhouse announce the return of their film-inspired art trail, ‘Lights, Camera…Paint’, now in its third year. Thanks to the generous support of local councillors and community funding from Worcester City Council, the trail will illuminate the city centre throughout September. Showcasing creations by local talents, charities, and organizations, the trail commemorates our passion for cinema and heralds the launch of the Worcester Film Festival.

The competition details are now live on until the deadline of July 19, 2024. This year, we’re embracing the theme of “Movie Mash-Ups”, encouraging artists to fuse their favourite films and venture beyond conventional boundaries.

Whether blending similar narratives or vastly different worlds, participants are invited to explore fresh and imaginative concepts. From novices to seasoned professionals, all creatives are encouraged to submit their work—no prior experience necessary. A panel will select twenty entries for inclusion in the final art trail, with preference given to artists from Worcestershire. Additionally, five artworks will be commissioned from local charities, organizations, or artists specializing in sustainable materials.

‘Lights, Camera..Paint’ has been created as part of the Worcester Film Festival to celebrate the synergy art has with film. Kirstie from Worcester Film Festival explains that part of her love for film is the fact that it encompasses all art forms and mediums “There is a place for every creative discipline in the process of making a film, I have seen that community come together, and that is really something special”

Artists Clubhouse is excited to be able to keep building the art trail as an opportunity for all creatives to be able to show off their talents no matter their level of experience or training. “We aim to encourage everyone to get involved in creativity in some way as a benefit to their wellbeing, whether it’s through seeing art, discovering and talking about new films with like-minded people or exploring being creative for themselves. All can be such a benefit for positive mental health” says founder, Emily Johnson.

The artists’ call out will run from 17th May until the deadline of 19th July 2024. For more information about the brief or the trail please visit the Artists Clubhouse website
