Video Art and Experimental Film Event #VAEFE Edition II
For VAEFE edition II, themed “Solidarity”, we call for entries from artists and filmmakers who reinvent and explore new approaches to Solidarity and support acts of solidarity through their work.
SEA Foundation is an artist-led contemporary art network. To fulfil our mission of creating awareness for contemporary art and building cultural resilience, we act as a catalyst in the working lives of artists and transgress the boundaries between disciplines. With this Video/Film Event, we aim to provide a platform for short documentaries, experimental artist films, and videos. SEA Foundation will select and screen movies, videos, and related works and present a diverse line-up of moving images.
The amount collected from the submission fees will be donated to Artists at Risk.
Please note: Open Air cinema will take place on the sidewalk at SEA Foundation, via a screen with complimentary audio, inside of the exhibition space and outside in our garden.
