NeMe has received 634 individual video submissions from 312 video makers collectively amounting to over 120 hours continuous viewing. This meant that the time we needed to preview all the works was much longer than we initially anticipated.

The selection committee was comprised of Yiannis Colakides (project coordinator), Dr Antonis Danos (Art History Lecturer), Dr Christos Barboutis (Media Lecturer) and Helene Black (Artist). After lengthy deliberations works from the following video makers were selected for the variety of screenings and events which will constitute The Mirror Stage:
