Sensoria 2020 features sonic celebration plus food, fashion and sustainable futures
“How Sensoria can continue to curate this level of excellence is nothing short of astonishing.”
Sensoria, the UK’s festival of film, music and digital will take place in Sheffield from 2 – 10 October 2020. In 2019 Sensoria presented an innovative, exciting and edgy music and film festival featuring future gazing artists, cult films with live soundtracks, exhibitions and on-stage collaborations – next year we will expand into food, fashion and more.
There are two cross cutting themes for 2020: SOUND OF THE CROWD and SUSTAIN.
2020 is the International Year of Sound, a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound and related sciences and technologies. With the theme Sound Of The Crowd, Sensoria will celebrate sound design in film, ‘sonic seasoning’ – and the human voice.
With Sustain we will be looking at food, music, fashion and sustainability for creators, promoters and audiences alike.
The festival is currently open to submissions, entries and ideas from musicians, filmmakers, sound designers, potential partners, co-promoters – in fact anyone who wants to make a suggestion.
Deadline for all submissions is 5pm 21 February 2020 but early submissions / contact very welcome.
