Open Call! AVAF edition 5

  • Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • Deadline: Sep 1 2024 at 12:00PM

Theme: (Re) Cover StoryDaily front pages across platforms circulate crisis, desperation and disasters, fueling division and despair. Our focus fragmented, analysis paralyzed, we struggle to discern urgent news from narratives designed to mask them. War, post-pandemic economic doom, scarcity, conflicts, inflation, deficit, unregulated AI, climate apocalypse, displacement and new wars broadcast a hopeless reading of our times. 


Within these turbulent currents, can art recover our stories and be a healing device to envision possibilities, will, and connectedness? What potential does video art hold to reframe these realities?  Addis Video Art Festival seeks works that examine these current conditions and related topics with open artistic input.
