Cairo Video Festival
Video Art & Experimental films
The Cairo Video Festival is a platform to start a conversation between video-artists, curators and the public, and a space for artists to showcase their innovative, low-budget video art productions that are selected according to quality, authenticity and conviction in investigation of subject matter.
Through ten days of screenings, artists talks, and discussions the Cairo Video Festival fosters this growing public interest in new media production and experimentation to expose audiences to artists and concepts from around the world.
The festival is Medrar’s first contribution to the art scene in 2005 and is the project through which Medrar was later established. It started as a collective of visual artists who were experimenting with a new medium and took initiative to establish themselves the space in which their works, along with works from all over the world, would be shown in the heart of this vigorous city.
