LiveBox "Barbecue” open call for video

  • Deadline:
    June 30, 2014, 9 a.m.
  • Location:
    LiveBox, to be announced, Chicago, Illinois, US

Food beyond sustenance has been a topic in literature and art since the gastronomy orgies of Ancient Rome. More recently the moving image has brought us treats of seduction, nostalgia, and excess. Think Ratatouille and Anton’s Ego’s sublime reaction to his childhood meal, or the Spaghetti scene in Lady and the Tramp, the Big Kahuna Burger in Pulp Fiction, coffee and cherry pie in Twin Peaks, the prison cooking scene in Goodfellas, Albert Finny sharing a tavern meal in Tom Jones, the entire feast in Barbette's Feast, the 50 eggs in Cool Hand Luke, nearly every scene of Chocolate and Julia & Julia. We’re looking for your creative turn on the themes of food - excess, seduction and nostalgia. Surprise us, and keep it short, maximum of 5 min. All genres accepted, but we’re looking for a truly innovative vision. Deadline June 30th
