Video Art Festival Miden

International video art festival.

About

Festival Miden, the first Greek video art festival presented in open public spaces, is an annual video art & new media cultural event held in Kalamata, GR.

The festival is founded, organised and curated by a team of contemporary Greek artists, who are all linked with Kalamata since childhood. It is an independent initiative, realised by Sea Level (Urban, Non-profit Organisation) and supported by Kalamata’s Historic Centre Organization, the Messinia Chamber of Commerce and the Municipality of Kalamata.

The main purpose of the festival is the free presentation, promotion and development of Greek and international video art and new media art, in times dominated and defined by image and technology, creating a new, alternative, peripheral meeting point for emerging and established video and media artists from Greece and all over the world.

The festival's motto is "Start from zero".

Rules

The proposed video can be of any genre (video art, experimental video, animation, short movie etc.) and there are no thematic restrictions. But every year the curatorial team proposes some themes and this year the proposed showcases are:

  • a special program entitled "Color",
  • a special program entitled "Get over it",
  • continuing the tribute against social discrimination that we started last year, we also release a special call for entries for a program dedicated to the  LGBT community, entitled “Love”.

Duration of the submitted works preferably under 10 min.
