Cologne Art & Moving Images Awards
is the new framework for all activities around art & moving images
realised and organised by artvideoKOELN international
directed and curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne.

The festival suite is using a common blog
http://coff.newmediafest.org/blog/
for news, updates and information, while the festival sites give
access to the festival programs online as a complementary component
of the dual festival system.

Like in 2011 and 2012, the nomadic festival project will be
travelling also in 2013 around the globe, each year at different places
in collaboration with new partners and hosts.

At this stage, thanks to all partners,
whether institutions, organisations, artists or directors
for the trustful cooperation during the past festival season.
