The viewing of submissions for the 35th European Media Art Festival (EMAF) is in full swing! We are very pleased today to be able to present the selection committee that will put together the competition and feature film programmes for the festival and present them to the public in April 2022. This international team of artists, curators, and filmmakers consists of Katrin Mundt, who is responsible for the film section of EMAF, Mason Leaver-Yap from Glasgow, Tinne Zenner from Copenhagen, and Viktor Neumann and Philip Widmann, both from Berlin.
Films, installations, performance projects, and works from the field of expanded media can still be submitted until 7 January 2022 via the online portal https://registration.emaf.de/en/.
We look forward to receiving your works!
