This year, the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival will take place
from November 9th to 14th, 2004. 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
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES IS AUGUST 1ST, 2004.
One of the festival's main emphases lies on current films and videos
exploring their subject matters with documentary means. The festival is also
interested in experimental and artistic video works.
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. The "Golden Cube" is presented to 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 "trans:fictions". Artists, video- and filmmakers,
researchers, writers and others interested in transdisciplinary exchange on
the related issue are invited to join the conference and to discuss their
ideas and projects dealing with ideas, images, figures and strategies of
translation, transmission, transfer and/or transgression.
