New Forms Festival 2008

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

You may have noticed a new addition to my sidebar’s sponsored section this month. The badge represents the New Forms Festival, which will showcase media arts in Vancouver from September 4-27.

This year’s New Forms Festival will explore media arts from all corners of the earth through the theme of Mosaics. Works at the festival will examine cross-cultural media through video, sound, internet, print and writing.

“Anyone who uses digital technology – even a cell phone – will relate to the performances and exhibitions,” says Jennifer Maksymetz, the festival’s new Artistic Director. “New Forms has become the largest new media arts festival on the west coast, and has something for everybody.”

They have released the official schedule today, which includes exhibitions and music events like ArtCamp08, Open Mobile [see also Facebook event and EventBrite registration], and a special get together for National Digital Media Day (September 25th).

Check the New Forms Festival website for more details about events and venues.
