We believe that independent video production has the potential to inspire and change the way we perceive the world and social reality. We are passionate about maximizing the general influence of 21st century avant-garde. Our mission is to develop an inclusive and creative open access network for filmmakers, poets, musicians and video artists, to host the collaboration of poets and filmmakers in new media, believing that this is the best way to renew and attract the public interest for poetry, this ancient art-form in the 21st century.
So, we’re helping the creation of a market for small independent movies, we offer a digital venue for art lovers to experience fields like poetry, video art and experimental music, art forms that have limited promotion and visibility to the general public.
We’re creating a catalog of ideas, views and revelations, an accumulation of new, mind expanding creations, we highlight and support the talent, we have passion for DIY social aware films, video poems and animations, we are enthousiasts of spoken word and we love experimental sound productions emerging from young creators, especially from far away unknown lands. More experienced and famous artists and theorists participating in the program offering their empowerment and guidance.
We want to offer not only an unforgettable film experience for the public, but also an enriched field of presentation for independent filmmakers, musicians and video artists.
To support the project, the Institute of Experimental Arts has set up a permanent curitorial committee with members from different scientific and artistic fields.
Our main goal is to produce artworks that push the boundaries of contemporary storytelling, inspire and provoke.
We’re looking for the most exciting and innovative storytelling in different ways, films that challenge and inspire the audience, the creation of unique, dedicated to bring together artists, minimize the separation of artistic media and embrace the power of visual storytelling and creative imagination.
The digital platform and film production program are designed to present a unique perspective on the innovative trends in poetry, introducing new ways in which this powerful form can be used for education, entertainment and the enhancement of arts, digital software and multimedia, exploring the impact on education, society and culture, developing a context of exciting and awakening creativity that inspires and empower.
