CURATORIAL TEAM IS NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR
THE CYFEST’S DIGITAL VIDEO ART PROGRAM.
One of the largest international media art festivals, CYFEST was founded in St. Petersburg in 2007 by independent artists and curators. The festival promotes the emergence of new forms of art and high technology interactions, developing professional connections between artists, curators, engineers and programmers around the world and exposing wide audiences to the works in the field of robotics, video art, sound art and net art. Over the years, the festival has invited artists from Russia, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Italy, the Philippines and other countries.
During its existence, the festival has earned a reputation as the original and the most significant New Media event in Russia. Making a pivotal leap in 2013 — CYFEST’s 7th edition expanded for the first time outside Russia to Berlin, attracting over 10,000 visitors over 5 days. In 2014/2015, CYLAND & CYFEST reached further by branching to 5 innovative cities (St Petersburg, Moscow, Tokyo, Berlin, New York) on the Art & Tech frontier, strengthening cultural exchange among innovators.
