[esc]: Electronic Story Creations

Citadel Theatre is accepting proposals for the [esc] series. We are looking for projects that:

  • are created specifically for digital presentation and can be experienced in one sitting (15 minutes max), or split into 2-3 serialized events (i.e. a story told in three 15-minute episodes). Please note: a video of a play reading is not eligible, but a script reimagined for digital dissemination is eligible;
  • have creative teams made up primarily of Edmonton-based artists;
  • are new works, OR adaptations of public domain materials or artist’s own materials.

The Citadel will provide successful projects with funding (thanks to the Edmonton Arts Council and Edmonton Community Foundation), and will assist in the amplification through communications and by directing audiences to your project. Selected artists will be responsible for online distribution of their creation through chosen digital method. The Citadel will also provide captioning for suitable projects.

Deadline has now passed. Thank you to all who submitted!
