Calling all artists, speakers and filmmakers one last time: This Friday is the deadline for all programme proposals for WOMEX 12, so make sure you get your Showcase, Film and Conference submissions in by then! If you are proposing a Showcase, please read the note further below.
Bear in mind that this year WOMEX is particularly welcoming Conference and Film proposals around the ongoing jazz & world focus at WOMEX, as well as those exploring the local Southeastern European music industry of the new host region.
Jean Michel Gibert (Trinidad and Tobago), Caribbean Music Group, said of their WOMEX 11 Film Screening: "It was nice to have a large and appreciative audience for the screening of our 'Calypso Rose: the Lioness of the Jungle'. It helped us to get a US touring agent involved with Rose's touring."
Submission forms, tips on how to propose and information about the online submission process can be found here: How to Propose
__Important Note for Showcase Proposals__
