About VAEFF 2023
The Video Art and Experimental Film Festival this year was filled with thought-provoking films, intriguing Q&A sessions, and so many talented artists.
The Opening Night Ceremony at the iconic Tribeca Film Center featured artists from all around the globe who were able to join together and share their art with fellow creatives. The screening and discussion sparked excitement for the days to come and the night ended with an artist after-party at Tribeca Grill. The ceremony was full of conversation, cocktails, and laughter that created a momentum that carried throughout the rest of the festival.
The next two days of the festival were held at The Producers Club Theatre in Hell’s Kitchen. The old-fashioned theater and its 70’s atmosphere perfectly complemented the boundary pushing nature of the films screened. Artist panels moderated by Mark Alpert featured passionate directors, actors and producers speaking about their work, the ideas that sparked their creation, and the process that took place to screen their films.
Thank you again for your participation in this year’s festival. We appreciate you, the work you do, and the art you create. VAEFF couldn’t take place without you all!

Eno’s soul-searching and sardonic short, featured in VAEFF 2023, exposes the honesty of PR by showing what life is really like for someone being interviewed even though their answers aggrandize the truth. Now, to bring the message home, he interviews Nico Montanari who was cast as the interviewer in the short. He turns the mirror onto Nico to talk about what it’s really like to interview someone else, and how he sees himself.
