VIDEOHOLICA 2014
INTERNATIONAL VIDEO ART FESTIVAL
7TH EDITION
7
OPEN CALL FOR VIDEO ART
1 - 7 AUGUST 2014, VARNA, BULGARIA

VIDEOHOLICA International Video Art Festival in Varna, Bulgaria starts the new open call for video art submissions for its 7th edition.

The 7th VIDEOHOLICA will take place between 1st and 7th August 2014 in Varna, Bulgaria.

This year's edition of VIDEOHOLICA will be accompanied by an international panel discussion on the issues and opportunities for alternative video art distribution and creating on-site archive of video art in Bulgaria.

The theme of VIDEOHOLICA 2014 is 7.
_

7 appears to be a hyper functional number featuring multiple typical symbolic and meaningful encumbrances. According to many, 7 is a sacred or primal number, a symbol of beginning and creation. Others define 7 as the golden mean between the first number 1 and the odd 13. According to some, 7 symbolizes the end or death, because it closes a series of various human phenomena in a cycle of 7, after which nothing happens. There are concepts, according to which 7 symbolizes harmony, connectivity and integrity bringing together 3 as a symbol of the intangible and ideological and 4 - as that of intangible. If in this irrational syncretism the disposition of 7 is also a base (beginning), medium, end, and all taken together, then the math is definitely funny and a hypothetical artistic study - very curious.

In its 7th year, VIDEOHOLICA recognizes 7 as its own existential performativity, but not to highlight its existing complex symbolism but to provoke new multidirectional thinking, associations and interpretations beyond the real potentiality of 7. What does 7 count for/ depict? What is more and what is less than 7? Is 7 enough? Where is the place of 7 in today's multitudinous/ multifunctional world? With these and other questions we are searching for poetic, abstract, ironic, conditional, metaphoric and literal comments on the moving image, committed to decompose the audio-visual and conceptual matrix of the figure 7.

VIDEOHOLICA 2013
INTERNATIONAL VIDEO ART FESTIVAL
6TH EDITION
[OUT OF FOCUS!]
OPEN CALL FOR VIDEO ART
1 – 5 AUGUST 2013, VARNA, BULGARIA

VIDEOHOLICA International Video Art Festival in Varna, Bulgaria starts the new open call for video art submissions for its 6th edition.

The 6th VIDEOHOLICA will take place between 1st and 5th August 2013 in Varna, Bulgaria.

The theme of VIDEOHOLICA 2013 is [OUT OF FOCUS!].

---
The 6th VIDEOHOLICA edition pleads defocusing.
Visually, VIDEOHOLICA [OUT OF FOCUS!] pleads against the idling mainstream tendency “everything to be in focus” and against the luxurious advertising image, which is digitally improved and cleaned up from “mistakes”.
Creatively, VIDEOHOLICA [OUT OF FOCUS!] pleads for a creative approach, which doesn’t follow the convenient slant of the tendencies. It is that approach, which uses allegorical language and speaks about things without pointing them out, describes them between the lines without “focusing” the camera directly in a point.
Politically, VIDEOHOLICA [OUT OF FOCUS!] pleads those alternative views of the problems of today’s society, which are out of focus of the news, and which are not on the agenda of the political analysis of the global community.
VIDEOHOLICA [OUT OF FOCUS!] pleads that outburst of “creative insanity”, after which the world is not the same any more.
[OUT OF FOCUS!] is both “blur” and “fog”, but it is also beyond this.

This year's VIDEOHOLICA festival will be composed of the following sections: video art, short films and animation.

VIDEOHOLICA 2013 will again award the following prizes:
