Call for Entries: Babel Fiche - a video museum for future humans

Babel Fiche is a unique crowd-source film that collects and remixes documentary footage.

During spring 2011 we are gathering contemporary video clips which describe everyday life around the Earth. These images will be printed onto colour microfiche – a film medium capable of lasting 500 years and simply requiring light and a lens to expand its contents.

Be a part of this unique time capsule - submit your clip online by 1 May 2011. It is totally free and open to anyone. Go to:

More info: Babel Fiche is an imaginary media for future citizens. It asks which behaviours, objects, traditions and conflicts we want to communicate to a future world. Today’s human cultures, physique and technology will inevitably develop out of all recognition. So how might a future species translate our current times? Babel Fiche will animate and remix the microfiche contents as a series of new stop-motion shorts. The production stage is open to creative people worldwide to participate in this film project.

Submit video clips. Get involved in art direction, writing and sound design. Remix the results.

Babel Fiche is a project by UK filmmaker Dave Griffiths. It is commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella, London; and supported by Northwest Film Archive, Manchester
