The Festival is looking for film-makers, both professional and amateur, to join its team to help realise an ambitious project - capturing the Dominoes project on film.
Filming will take place around the Dominoes event in Central Milton Keynes on Saturday 16 July.
Dominoes has been created by UK-based company Station House Opera and sees over 6,500 domino-like blocks form a moving sculpture across Milton Keynes in an event that draws together the communities it passes through.

An exciting and uplifting event to witness and experience, Dominoes has travelled the world and now comes to Milton Keynes.
Watch Dominoes in Melbourne to see how the project affects a city and its people here. This spirit of togetherness and the impact on people will be at the heart of the film the Festival is aiming to produce.
The 2km Dominoes run sees these blocks topple with ‘tricks’ and highlights along the way, so viewers will see Dominoes move up stairs, falling from windows and great heights, and weaving over and around obstacles.
Starting at the top of The Point, the line then travels through intu shopping centre, through people’s homes, over parked cars and vans, through Xscape (avoiding dinosaurs!), past the old Wyvale Garden Centre, through a pub and Milton Keynes Theatre, culminating in a finale on Midsummer Boulevard East in the Theatre District.
The Festival is looking to create a team of film-makers who will be stationed along the route to capture the people, the atmosphere and the Dominoes themselves.
A smaller team will also be needed to document the excitement and hard work that takes place during the day as the Station House Opera team and 200 volunteers build the Dominoes line.
