VAEFF 2017 Highlights

VAEFF 2017 Official Selections Trailer

The Seventh Annual Video Art and Experimental Film Festival (VAEFF) introduced New York City to the most conceptually and aesthetically arresting, daring and provocative video art and experimental film from around the world. The festival continued with the ever-popular “Beauty, Sex & Shame” program, and featured  the brand new “On the Margins” program as well as “Fashion Film – The New Wave,” guest curated by Niccolo Montanari, one of Fashion Film’s most prominent curators. In addition to the official selection, VAEFF invited a number of artists who continue to amaze the art, film, and media worlds with their exceptional portfolio of work. The resulting lineup was a captivating roster of both established and emerging artists from around the globe.


In recent years, fashion film has gravitated toward the conceptual, eventually evolving into an art form in its own right. VAEFF has recognized the phenomenon of this new wave of fashion film and has included the genre in its selections for several years now. 
Last  year, VAEFF was excited to present its newest program: Fashion Film – The New Wave, put together by guest curator Niccolo Montanari, one of fashion film’s most prominent curators.
