This year, the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival will celebrate 
its 20th anniversary, taking place from November 11th to 16th, 2003. The 
festival presents current documentary films and videos, the media art 
exhibition MONITORING, as well as the interfiction symposium. We invite all 
filmmakers, media people, and artists to submit their latest works and 
projects for the individual sections of the Festival program. Closing date 
for entries is August 15th, 2003.

A major focus of the Fesival is current films and videos which explore 
their subject matters with documentary means. The video program of the 
Festival also focuses on the innovative use of digital media and 
video-specific tools. For this section, experimental and artistic video 
works may be submitted as well.

The exhibition MONITORING deals with the current room-related positioning 
of media art. During the Festival, it displays approximately 15 media 
installations and sculptures, which will be selected from the entries. The 
exhibition will be held in the Suedfluegel and other locations of the 
Kassel KulturBahnhof. The exhibition is a cooperative effort of the 
Festival, the »Kasseler Kunstverein« and the Kulturdezernat / documenta 
Archive of the City of Kassel.

At the festival, three awards will be presented, each endowed with EURO 
2,500. The »Golden Key«, sponsored by the City of Kassel, is presented to 
the best documentary by a young director. The newspaper HNA recognises an 
outstanding production from the region of Northern Hesse with its »Golden 
Hercules« award. For the first time, the Sparkassen-Kulturstiftung 
Hessen-Thueringen presents an award for the best installation of the 
exhibition MONITORING. In addition, there is also an award for the 
innovative use of digital production and post-production tools. Artists 
working with digital media may apply for the project grant of the Werkleitz 
Gesellschaft e.V. - Center for Art and Media Sachsen-Anhalt - providing 
technical support worth up to EURO 3,000.

This year's interfiction symposium (including lectures, presentations, and 
a workshop) is dedicated to »filesharer values - economies of exchange«. 
Artists, film and videomakers, researchers, writers and others interested 
in transdisciplinary exchange are invited to take part in the symposium and 
to present and discuss their ideas and projects dealing with utopias and 
realities of cultural production under net conditions. Call for 
contributions and further information: www.interfiction.net
