Evaluation One of the most successful blends of film, video and media presentation in Europe. Always demonstrating a sure sense of the major new developments on the scene. One of the most important forums for experimental film. The integration of students has proved successful - as filmmakers, exhibitors and visitors. Solid regional and national press coverage, not only in specialized film journals, but also in art magazines.
