5th International Video Poetry Festival 2016


The +Institute [for Experimental Arts] and Void Network present

the 5th International Video Poetry Festival 2016

Winter 2016

at Free Self-Organised Theatre EMBROS / Athens / Greece

The yearly International Video Poetry Festival 2016 will be held for fifth time in Greece in Athens. Approximately 2500 people attended the festival last years.
There will be two different zones of the festival. The first zone will include video poems, visual poems, short film poems and cinematic poetry by artists from all over the world (America, Asia, Europe, Africa). The second zone will include cross-platform collaborations of sound producers and music groups with poets and visual artists in live improvisations.
The International Video Poetry Festival 2016 attempts to create an open public space for the creative expression of all tendencies and streams of contemporary visual poetry.

It is very important to notice that this festival is a part of the counter culture activities of Void Network and + the Institute [for Experimental Arts] and will be non-sponsored, free entrance, non commercial and non profit event. The festival will cover the costs (2000 posters, 15.000 flyers, high quality technical equipment) from the incomes of the bar of the festival.All the participating artists and the organizing groups will participate voluntary to the festival.This year is the first time where it will be a submission fee for the participation to the festival in order to cover the expenses of the festival. The submission fee is 5 euro for the participation. Each artist can send more than one work.( 1 to 3 video poems)

Void Network started organizing multi media poetry nights in 1990. Void Network and +the Institute [for Experimental Arts] believe that multi media Poetry Nights and Video Poetry shows can vibrate in the heart of Metropolis, bring new audiences in contact with contemporary poetry and open new creative dimensions for this ancient art. To achieve this, we respect the aspirations and the objectives of the artists, create high quality self organized exhibition areas and show rooms, we work with professional technicians and we offer meeting points and fields of expression for artists and people that tend to stand antagonistically to the mainstream culture.
We would like to thank Dave Bonta from the Moving Poems, a global site with the best video poems in the web that inspired us to create the International Video Poetry Festival in Athens and we cooperate since 2012 to spread out the announcement of the Festival each year so as to gather new video poems from all over the world.
