VAEFF STTW Festival kick-off collaborative outdoor screening

As people approached 54 Jay Street, they first noticed loud music. Walkers & bicyclists stopped in the middle of the street to watch as others took out their smartphones to document the scene: the VAEFF STTW video program glowing, over two stories tall, on a nearby wall. Learn More…

Beauty, Sex & Shame

For the fifth year, VAEFF will present “Beauty, Sex & Shame”, a program examining the interplay of beauty, sexual representation, and shame as expressed through art, fashion, and music videos. The works span from sexually provocative rebellion in the new digital age to intimate personal encounters with patriarchal and religious dogmas.

Color, Movement & Space

More than a century after the first film was made, artists are still discovering new ways of manifesting through this medium. “Color, Movement & Space” highlights the latest arresting works created among them that push the sensory boundaries for expression through film.

Fashion & Music - Special Selection

Hand-picked by publicist and curator Niccolo Montanari, “Between Fashion and Music” is a celebration of recent video productions ranging from fashion film and commercials to music videos and short films. 



On the Margins

“On the Margins” is a probing selection of films focused on people who do not fit into society’s norms. Each work gives fresh insight into the human spirit via a variety of filmmaking techniques and viewpoints designed to highlight the outsider’s place.
