Open Call

We are now open to receiving work from college students exploring texts from the Spanish Golden Age period towards digital storytelling pieces, such as Video Art, Short Films, or Podcasts, in English or with subtitles in English. The length of the pieces should be 5 minutes max.

OUR NEW GOLD is an international festival for college students. With this call out to participate in Our New Gold Festival we wish to promote artistic work inspired by the Spanish Golden Age Theatre internationally. We encourage students to delve into different tasks such as translating, rewriting, filming, acting, and producing their creations. We hope to open new ways of understanding and portraying the Spanish Golden Age legacy in the contemporary educational and professional creative world; embracing classical works in our digital times form a more social, inclusive and vibrant approach.

Selected entries will be premiered at the 2022 International Festival of Classical Theatre in Almagro, Spain and hosted on OUR NEW GOLD festival’s Website.

Our international jury of practitioners and academics will choose participants to receive a workshop with an established theatre creator.
