Medrar for Contemporary Art launches its call for the 11th edition of Cairo Video Festival, which will be held in December 2024. The festival continues its focus on providing a platform for sharing and discussing newly produced video art and experimental film. Programs will be screened in conventional and non-conventional venues, in theater and exhibition spaces to promote, expand and harvest attention to the practice.

The 11th edition of Cairo Video Festival culminates many steps and stages that represent our experiences with video art and experimental film, and also summarizes our recurrent inquiries about the relationship between artistic expression and the reality we live in, the current events and our eagerness to experiment and add new and different values ​​with each edition. It is an opportunity that we yearn for with every edition to witness these innovations, experiences and new concepts from around the world, and to share them with the public.

The call for submission is directed towards video artists and experimental filmmakers from various technical fields. We also encourage designers and developers who work in the fields of virtual reality, animation, interactive softwares, and artistic games via the Internet, computers or smartphones to respond to the call. Likewise, those who emphasize the use of the moving image in their installations or live performances. Curators and institutions involved in the production and distribution of video art and experimental film are encouraged to submit their programs. The festival’s program takes the format of a series of showcases, accompanied by talks and discussions with active video-makers and curators to tackle some of the key themes and issues addressed in the works.
