We would like to invite you to submit your contributions to participate in the EMAF by 05 December 2011.

We look forward to receiving your entries to the European Media Art Festival competition, with new works. You&8217;re invited to send us films, videos, installation- and performance projects or expanded media works. Please use the online forms for all submissions.

EMAF is one of the most influential forums of international Media Art. As a meeting point for artists, curators, distributors, galleries and an audience of experts the festival has a great impact on the topics and aesthetics of Media Arts.

Each year the festival offers its visitors a current overview of experimental films, installations, performances and new digital formats, ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements from the pulsating area of “Media Art – Society”. The Festival sees itself as a place of experimentation and a laboratory where extraordinary works, experiments and ventures are created and presented.

At the festival an international jury will select the EMAF Award for a trend-setting work in Media Art, the Newcomer Award and the Dialogpreis of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural exchange.
