Attention, filmmakers, the National Film Board of Canada and arts group ARTE are beginning a web series and need submissions. Entitled "Interactive Haiku," the series wants to compile "short online experiences" from an international body of filmmakers. 

The project is inspired by the age of brevity that the digital world finds itself it, where some of the smallest bits of art (Vine, Memes) encourage a deep understanding after only a quick glance. "Interactive Haiku" aims to bring the brevity and richness of haiku, the controlled japanese poetic form that allows for no more and no less than 17 syllables, to the online realm. 

Twelve submissions will be selected.  As a guide, the organizers offer the following ten guidelines for the interactive projects. 

1.            The experience should be 60 seconds long.

2.            It should inspire us to see the world we live in differently.

3.            Only one interactive concept should be used.

4.            It should employ a full browser design with common “NFB/ARTE” header.

5.            No navigation menu should be used.

6.            Project must include sound.

7.            It should be understandable and accessible to an international audience.

8.            Project creators must own or have released all rights.

9.            Must be computer, tablet and mobile friendly (iOS, Android and Windows).

10.          And because there’s always an exception to the rule: break one of the creative rules 1 through 7 and explain why.

Submissions are due by August 19, 2014.
