Based in Chicago, the Third Coast International Audio Festival curates, honors, and shares the best audio stories produced around the world, and encourages new work from veteran producers and audio enthusiasts alike.
Each spring, Third Coast invites everyone to produce short audio stories that follow a specific set of rules for our 2016 ShortDocs Challenge: Radio Cinema. No prior experience is necessary!
This year’s ShortDocs Challenge is inspired by the conventions of film, and created in partnership with Purchase Manual Cinema – a cinematic shadow puppet performance collective! This year’s challenge is all about delighting the mind’s eye.
Manual Cinema will adapt one of the winning submissions into a live cinematic stage performance in Chicago this fall.
