Established in 2010, the Video Art and Experimental Film Festival remains committed to showcasing a selected number of contemporary Video Artists from around the globe who amaze the art, film, and media worlds with their exceptional portfolio of work. The resulting lineup is a captivating roster of both established and emerging artists.

For the 2018 festival, VAEFF will be bringing back the popular “Beauty, Sex & Shame” program for its fifth year. We will also be bringing back last year’s “On the Margins” program, and for the second year, guest curator Niccolo Montanari will be curating a “Fashion & Music – Special Selection” program. A fourth, new program will be making its debut this year: “Color, Movement & Space.”

VAEFF 2018 will kick off on November 8th at DCTV and will include screenings of all four programs and the festival’s opening reception.

The festival will continue on November 9th at Tribeca Film Center with more screenings of selected films, each followed by eye-opening Q&A sessions with the filmmakers moderated by Mark Alpert.

On November 10th at DCTV, VAEFF 2018 will present a special screening of selected works at DCTV followed by a discussion with artists and filmmakers, moderated by Mark Alpert. The festival will be concluded with the closing gala, featuring complimentary food, beer and wine.
