Trailer: Video Art and Experimental Film Festival 2013

New York Art Department is pleased to announce its partnership with for the third annual Video Art & Experimental Film Festival (VAEFF), which will take place February 7-9, 2013 at the iconic Tribeca Cinemas in New York City.

The three-day festival aims to introduce New York audiences to the most arresting, provocative and conceptually challenging works in time-based media today. Drawing from hundreds of submissions, the festival will feature a diverse array of short films by video artists and experimental filmmakers from around the world, including the USA, Italy, Sweden, Colombia, Iran and the UK. This year’s festival has had the most rigorous selection process since its inception three years ago, and the lineup is a captivating roster of both established and emerging artists from around the globe.

VAEFF aspires to become a public gateway into the ever-expanding and fluctuating worlds of experimental filmmaking and video art, and to expose a diverse audience to avant-garde video artists and experimental filmmakers. The festival is not only a platform for showcasing exceptional work, but also a forum for the public and artists to debate and exchange ideas. This year’s eclectic selection of works, along with the surrounding discussions and panels, will help further VAEFF founder Dan Fine’s desire to “democratize the relationship between artists, curators, institutions, and the public worldwide.”
