This year's 19th Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest will take place 
November 13 - 17, 2002. The Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest is a 
festival which aims at providing insight into current international 
documentary filming and video work. We intend to present critical, 
ambitious and entertaining documentary films and videos committed to both 
reports on current affairs and off-beat topics.
The video section of the Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest is also 
interested in experimental and artistic videos, which reveal the use of 
video specific means.
The exhibition MONITORING - organized in cooperation with Kasseler 
Kunstverein and Kulturdezernat/documenta Archiv - presents media art 
installations and sculptures. The entries should include a detailed sketch 
of the project and a list of the technical equipment needed.

We look forward to receiving your new works - produced in 2001 or 2002 - 
until August 15, 2002. If the original version is neither in English nor in 
German, you should subtitle you work or include a text file in English.
The selection will be finished by October 15, 2002. We will inform you 
about our decision soon after. If your work is selected, you will be 
contacted for a screening copy.

For the first time this year, the Cultural Affairs Office of the City of 
Kassel will provide a cash prize in the amount of EURO 2,500 for an 
exceptional documentary work from a young director. Documentary works in 
all film and video formats are eligible from directors not older than 35 
years of age.
For supporting the Media development in Northern Hessen, an outstanding 
regional production is going to be awarded with a prize worth of EURO 2,500 
sponsored by the local daily newspaper Hessische Niedersaechsische 
Allgemeine (HNA).
The Werkleitz Gesellschaft e.V. - Zentrum fuer kuenstlerische Bildmedien 
Sachsen-Anhalt - assigns the "Werkleitz Projektstipendium", a grant 
providing technical support worth of up to EURO 4,000. The aim of the 
"Werkleitz Grant" is to honor and support artists which works indicate in a 
very special way the innovative use of digital media.

This year's interfiction conference including lectures, presentations and a 
seminar focuses on the topic "arteFaction! Mistakes in/as Media". To be 
discussed are not only artistic productions with and without authors but 
also and especially difficulties and errors of all sorts occurring in 
transmission and the possible benefits and drawbacks of such manifestations 
for electronic culture. Watch out for the upcoming call for papers or 
projects online at www.interfiction.net in May 2002.

Again, the Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- and Videofest will cooperate with oVid 
- the internet database for experimental film and video art. For further 
informations on this project see www.werkleitz.de/ovid
