The community the landscape and the territory are the elements which make LFF unique in its genre. The Cinema gets rich with other artistic forms: Video installations, performance Cinema, rural Theatre, applied sounds, international competitions of short and long films, with retrospectives of masters of the Cinema revived in different contexts, because the projection headquarters are the lands, the corn fields, the white little houses of the farmers or the housewives, streets and terraces.

Rhizome awards grants to emerging artists for creation of new media art. By new media art, we mean projects that creatively engage new and networked technologies and works that reflect on the broader social and political impact of these tools and media in a variety of forms.

Commissioned works can take the final form of web-based works, works that engage mobile platforms, performance, video, installation or sound art. Projects can be made for the context of the gallery, the public, the web or networked devices. Rhizome Commissions awards generally range from $1,000 to $5,000.

Computers are extremely complex machines for which, since early times, their inner workings have to be hidden behind interfaces in order to use them. Software engineering and interface design have developed strategies of information hiding and functional segmentation to accomplish this. Systems like Doug Engelbart’s NLS, Ivan Sutherland’s Sketchpad, Alan Kay’s Dynabook, the Graphical User Interfaces, the iTunes Store, Facebook and Cloud Computing are examples of highly complex designs that show simplicity at their surface. People are not expected to know anything about what goes on at the backend.
