VIDEO ART FESTIVAL MIDEN
Festival Miden*, the first Greek video art festival presented in open public spaces, is an annual video art & new media cultural event held in Kalamata, GR.
The festival is founded, organised and curated by a team of contemporary Greek artists, who are all linked with Kalamata since childhood. It is an independent initiative, realised by Sea Level (Urban, Non-profit Organisation) and supported by Kalamata’s Historic Centre Organization, the Messinia Chamber of Commerce and the Municipality of Kalamata.
The main purpose of the festival is the free presentation, promotion and development of Greek and international video art and new media art, in times dominated and defined by image and technology, creating a new, alternative, peripheral meeting point for emerging and established video and media artists from Greece and all over the world.
Since 2005, Festival Miden has been gradually established as one of the most successful and interesting video art festivals in Greece and abroad and has been a significant point of cultural exchange for Greek, European and international video art.
Festival Miden has presented screening programs, exhibitions and collaborations all over Greece, while collaborating with various art groups, art schools, art spaces, organisations and other festivals in Greece and internationally.
The festival's motto is "Start from zero".
(*Miden means “zero” in Greek)
