PRESS RELEASE

Theme: A P A R T TOGETHER

 

In this past year flights stopped, streets and roads emptied, offices, restaurants, schools... closed. Millions lost lives. Touching, sharing, closeness, getting together, even the simple act of breathing became threatening. We have been thrown into a historical period we never imagined could occur in our lifetime nor be prepared for. The experience has left us questioning our human accomplishments and potential. Still in the midst of the crisis, it’s too soon to know the effect it has had and will have on our path ahead. Video has become our way to see, hear, and speak to each other, a mechanism for connection. Among these challenges, creativity lives on. We create to communicate our ideas, to connect the new distance that is forced upon us. In responding to these recent conditions Addis Video Art Festival seeks video shorts that examine, reflect, and parallel these experiences.
