The Festival screenings take place on Thursday, October 21st, at Kino Tapiola in Espoo, and on Saturday, October 23th, at the Cable Factory, Helsinki, as part of the Alternative Party event. The majority of the selected artworks are either fully digitally generated or the audiovisual material has been manipulated in a way that would not have been possible without digital technology. In order to provide a more complete spectrum of things happening currently in New Media, the selection also includes some more traditional film or video works. In these, the focus is on experiments with the narrative form rather than technological experimentation.
Screening at Kino Tapiola, Thu 21 October / 18 – 23
Kino Tapiola, Mäntyviita 2, Espoo
A live performance by Dialogues Underground after the screening.
