For over 20 years, the European Media Art Festival- The Forum for expanded Media has been the meeting point for audiences and guests from home and abroad. Around 250 new works of media art, including world premieres, are presented. The festival shows film as a contemporary work of art in cinemas and exhibitions, both performed and using multimedia.
Each year around 180 current experimental shorts, feature-length films and videos are selected from a total of roughly 2000 works submitted from around the world. They range from narrative approaches to documentary/analytical views of war events and environmental problems. Visually walking the borderline between real and virtual areas of communication is also selected as a central theme. There are countries of focus chosen annually.
Three awards will be presented at the festival: the "emaf Award" for a trend-setting work in media art, the "Dialogpreis" of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural exchange and the "Preis der deutschen Filmkritik" for the best German experimental film.
Besides taking stock and giving an outlook, the current determination of the position of media art is also the focus of lectures and panel discussions. How has digitization changed artistic production? Which interrelationships exist between artistic and commercial media production? How have these interrelationships affected aesthetics, form and content?
Their is also an International Student Forum which offers the contact and exchange point for projects and offerings in higher education: the Hochschule für Gestaltung from K
