The +Institute [for Experimental Arts]
and Void Network
the 3rd International
Video Poetry Festival
that will take place in Athens in 28 November 2014.
The yearly International Film Poetry Festival will be held for third time in Greece on Friday 28/11/2014 2014 in Athens. Approximately 1000 people attended the festival last year.
There will be two different zones of the festival.The first zone will include video poems, visual poems, short film poems and cinematic poetry by artists from all over the world (America, Asia, Europe, Africa). The second zone will include cross-platform collaborations of sound producers and music groups with poets and visual artists in live improvisations.
The International Film Poetry Festival 2014 attempts to create an open public space for the creative expression of all tendencies and streams of contemporary visual poetry.
It is very important to notice that this festival is a part of the counter-culture activities of Void Network and + the Institute [for Experimental Arts] and will be non-sponsored, free entrance, non commercial and non profit event. The festival will cover the costs (2000 posters, 15.000 flyers, high quality technical equipment e.t.c.) from the incomes of the bar of the festival.
All the participating artists and the organizing groups will participate voluntary to the festival.
Void Network started organizing multi media poetry nights in 1990. Void Network and +the Institute [for Experimental Arts] believe that multi media Poetry Nights and Video Poetry shows can vibrate in the heart of Metropolis, bring new audiences in contact with contemporary poetry and open new creative dimensions for this ancient art. To achieve this, we respect the aspirations and the objectives of the artists, create high quality self organized exhibition areas and show rooms, we work with professional technicians and we offer meeting points and fields of expression for artists and people that tend to stand antagonistically to the mainstream culture.

and APPLICATION FORM visit:
after the kind demand by the assembly of self-organised theater Embros -the location of 2014 festival- we have to announce that the festival will take place one week earlier than the originally announced program, on Friday 28/11/2014. Cause of that unexpected change the +Institute [for Experimental Arts] can not include the last week’s entries (20-28/11) in the printed flyers and the posters of the event. We can include the names of participators at the printed program and the internet publicity of the festival. We will include also the last week’s participations directly to the official program of next year International Film Poetry Festival 2015
