During Dutch Open, April 14 - 16, the Netherlands Media Art Institute 
is organizing a seminar and expert meetings on new techniques and 
their potential for the distribution of video art. In the seminar 
prominent speakers will illuminate the present state of affairs, and 
on the basis of case studies Dutch and international artists, 
researchers and cultural institutions will present their activities 
to the public. The material will be discussed in greater depth during 
the expert meetings. Among other subjects to be discussed are 
distribution practice (traditional, and cutting edge), new

Dutch Open
International Festival for Dutch Film and Video Art
April 14 - 17
De Balie, Amsterdam
Dutch Open is a new phenomenon in The Netherlands. For four days 
Dutch Open will offer the unique possibility of experiencing a 
program packed with the latest Dutch films and videos. It is unique 
because it provides a complete overview of the film and video art 
that is pushing back the boundaries, this time not hidden away on 
side programs in out-of-the-way theatres, but in the full glare of 
the spotlights! www.dutchopen.org
