 Generator 

 6th Cairo Video Festival 

Video Art & Experimental Films

 

The 6th festival is inspired by the “generator,” which has become a staple in the life of Egyptians, due to the frequent power outages over the past two years. A generator offers an alternative to keep life in motion. Similarly, we are hoping through the festival to create alternative channels, which can assimilate the creative energy bursting in the region despite the difficult production conditions.

In order to provide an expansive space for video and film artists, the 6th festival is offering equal opportunity to screen their works among an international collection of works, adhering to objective standards in the selection process. Meanwhile, experimentation beyond the classifications of film production genres and technologies are encouraged and appreciated. In addition to Medrar’s venue, the festival will include other screening venues, some of which are government affiliated, provided by the Fine Arts Sector of the Ministry of Culture. This aims to achieve a larger exposure, by reaching a broader sector of audience.

The festival is hosting a number of film production and distribution organizations, as well as specialized curators, to exchange experience regarding the terms of production, curation and screenings, discover new talents and give them the chance to become part of the art scene, and promote international cultural exchange.

Moreover, the festival is organizing methodic workshops to determine the most adequate form of training programs, in anticipation of launching “Medrar’s Video and Experimental Film School.”
