Digital Fringe is an open access public arts festival that places
contemporary screen based media in public locations. It provides
artists with access to an extensive network of hundreds of public
screens and non-traditional audiences throughout Australia and the
world. Screening venues receive a playlist curated from the diverse
visual works of animation, abstract, video art, short film,
machinima, motion graphics, photography and stills submitted to the
Digital Fringe festival via our website - digitalfringe.com.au. Login
and upload your works.
In keeping with the Fringe Festival charter, Digital Fringe is open
access and accessible to emerging and established artists,
particularly those working in screen based and new media. Submissions
are received from all around the world: from professional artists to
bedroom doodlers and everybody in between. Artists maintain control
of their own copyright.
Screening venues range from busy bars and cafes, bustling shopping
centres, walls of TV's in electrical stores, State and regional
libraries, art galleries, and cultural institutions, suburban shop
fronts and on massive urban screens in public plazas like Melbourne's
Federation Square. Digital Fringe screens are also appearing in
outback Australia, and across the Americas's, Africa, the UK and
Europe. All submissions also play on the Digital Fringe website.
Produced by Horse Bazaar with assistance from Film Victoria and
Melbourne Fringe, Digital Fringe 09 will create a web of screen art
in public space across Melbourne, Regional Australia and the world!
