The Line-up

Most film festivals and submission-based screenings require that artists pay them to submit their work and also charge admission. But with your help, Video! Video! Video Festival won’t be like other festivals.We will be FREE: Free for makers to submit to and free for the public to experience! But, as Plato famously said, freedom is never really free. We have just started an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds necessary to make sure we can make this event free of charge and accessible to all! We will use your donations to ensure that everyone can participate for free. We will pay our panelists, pay our staff, and offer a travel honorarium to our visiting video artist! With the money we will throw a huge party and we will pay our DJs and performers!

We're happy to announce our guest of honor, Francisca Benitez!
