This year, the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival will take place
from November 8th to 13th, 2005. 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 1st, 2005.

One of the festival’s main emphasis 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 among 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 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 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

This year’s interfiction symposium (including lectures, presentations and a
workshop) is dedicated to „Learning from
? “. 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.
