CologneOFF X - 10th Cologne International Videoart Festival
Founded in 2006, Cologne International Videoart Festival is celebrating in 2014 its 10th festival edition
During 10 years, CologneOFF was supporting "art & moving images" and and encourage artists to use this exciting medium creatively.
For Cologne International Videoart Festival, CologneOFF X is representing the final festival edition, afterwards
Cologne International Videoart Festival will continue as an exhibition format of artvideoKOELN international
in the framework of its global activities of "art & moving images".
CologneOFF X ist standing under the theme of "Total Art", showing video as a multi-facetted artistic audio-visual medium,
which is executed solely by its creator, including filming, cutting, editing, composing, post-priducing etc, thus the whole creation in one single hand.
The digitalization of video made it only possible, that artists can create such a "total art" work, due to the affordability of the entire production. It is not even necessary to have the most advanced professional equipment. A creative person can use even cheap production tools for creating excellent art works.
But, "Total Art" is not only related to the creative production of a video, but also to the artistic contents, encouraging submitting artists to use all their creativity to go steps forward in exploring the artistic potential of video.
CologneOFF X is
- looking for art works using video as a medium in all its variety, but for submitting only single channel videos are eligible, a hybrid type of work which can be used for different presentation forms like screening, projection and installation.
- expecting new and experimental artistic approaches in transforming essential issues of human existence into the language of the "moving images".
- inviting film & video creators - to submit up to 3 videos (max duration 10 minutes, exceptions possible)) in following categories -->
(experimental) film - videoart - documentary, whereby animated and very short (60 seconds) forms are particularly encouraged.
