We invite film makers, artists, students, programmers and
designers to contribute works to the Nanofestival and
share it with the internet community.
Our aim is to create an open source pool for extreme
short web-movies and software-art. This time we want
especially encourage creative people from Middle and Eastern Europe
to submit, since these countries has a very long tradition
of progressive film culture.
Naturally, every one from any continent, country or non-country, is
also warmly welcomed.

Nanofestival v.01 is a no-budget, on-line art festival for extreme short
(!max. 10 sec.!) web movies and software art.
The event is organized by ZEROGLAB, an independent digital art-lab
in Rotterdam.
We are planning the festival as a fast sequence of events,
with a different theme every time.

THE THEME OF THE FESTIVAL THIS TIME = AUTOMAT
(the next theme = HOLE)

The contributed works for AUTOMAT are going to be screened at ZECHS
in The Hague
on 30 March 2003.
The ZECHS event is organized by the architect/design studio
