“Aquatic life” and marine worlds
We call upon you all to propose video sequences of 15′ to 30′ seconds filmed horizontally, of your training courses, creations, shows, workshops, constructions, drawings, scenographies, animations. From the imaginary of the great white whale Moby Dick to the little golden fish, from the imaginary of mermaids to the reality of incredible beings such as octopuses and the tiniest micro-organisms, or the marvellous coral reefs, or the salmon that swims upstream. Aquatic life” is a balance of treasures that artists and scientists have never stopped exploring. Beyond the aquarium, we invite you to dive into the unknown and the marvellous of life in the waters.
