The Call for Entries for 34th European Media Art Festival is open!


The EMAF (European Media Art Festival No. 33) is internationally recognized as one of the most influential forums for contemporary media art. The festival sees itself as an experimental field and laboratory in which extraordinary works and projects are created and presented. As a meeting place for artists, curators, distributors, gallery owners and the public, the festival has a great influence on the themes and aesthetics of media art. Every year, the EMAF offers its visitors an up-to-date overview of experimental films, installations, performances, digital formats and hybrid forms that range from personal and political topics to formal experiments. The EMAF awards three prizes every year: the EMAF Media Art Prize of the German Film Critics' (VDFK, endowed with 1,000 euros),
