Irina Gabiani at: Cologne Off at Budapest International short video festival 2010


COLOGNE OFF – Cologne International Videoart Festival
CologneOFF VI – Let’s Celebrate!
directed & chief curated by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
World Premiere on BuSho – Budapest Short Film Festival
The festival theme is referring to 5th Anniversary of CologneOFF and its unusually successful concept as a festival context without a static festival location. Since its foundation in 2006, CologneOFF is conceptionally based in Internet, but conquered from this virtual place the physical world with engaged programs of experimental film and video art. Some of the most successful young film & video artists started their career on CologneOFF before they became successful. The 6th festival edition in sequence invited an international jury consisting of Margarida Paiva (Oslo Screen Festival Norway), Gioula Papadopoulou (Videoart Festival Miden Greece), Macu Moran (Video Art World, Spain)
Giorgio Fedeli (Visual Container /Italy), Jonas Nilsson/Eva Olsson (Art Video Screening & Orebro International Videoart Festival/Sweden), Mohammed Allam (Medrar Video Festival/ Egypt), Tamas Gabeli (Budapest International Shortfilm Festival/Hungary) who selected among 80 nominated artists also the 16 below.
