WHAT IS NANOFESTIVAL?

ZEROGLAB NANOFESTIVAL is a parasite, portable, adoptable, resizable,
open source, international art festival for extreme short (10 sec.!)
web movies and software art.
Nanofestival as an event is also establishing a new model for
cultural engineering. Not only the individual works that are open
source, but the whole festival can be 'picked, taken and presented'
for free, and by anyone on a single cd-rom.

The event is organized by ZEROGLAB, an independent art-lab in
Rotterdam.
[http://www.xs4all.nl/~are ]
The festival is a sequence of events, with a different theme every
time.

If you like the idea and want to participate, please fill the entry
form at the end of this page and send it to:
Karoly Toth
Please include: "nanofestival v.03 submission" in the subject line.

The first two Nanofestivals presented over 100 submissions from the

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Estonia, France,
Hungary, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway,

2. CONTRIBUTION / MODERATION / ETC.
Anyone can contribute. After sending your entry form, please place
your work at your own website, or in a place where anyone can access
it.
We have only a limited web space on our own, so we are not able to
store large movie files. Nevertheless, we are building a archive of
the submitted works.

The screenings are editions, and not presenting all the submitted
works.
The reason for this is rather technical. Because many works are not
in movie file format, it is sometimes not possible to convert them to
mini-dv or streaming video, or the like. The nano website contains
all submissions in the form of a somewhat criptic database.

PLEASE MAKE SURE, YOUR WEB LINKS ARE WORKING BY 31 OCTOBER 2003

4. COPYRIGHT ISSUES
By submitting your work to the festival, you agree that you let
others copy, distribute, display, and perform your work and
derivative works based upon it but for noncommercial purposes only,
and only if they give you credit.
