Oslo Screen Festival 2012Deadline: 1 November 2011

Oslo Screen Festival is an happening in Oslo every two years. This is a non-profit initiative started in 2008 by visual artist Margarida Paiva and producer Rune Sandnes.

The festival has been organized in autumn 2008 and spring 2010 at Filmens Hus in Oslo, each time with a duration of three days. Throughout the year the festival presents curated programmes in collaborative festivals around the world.

Both established and emerging artists are invited to send their work. The festival focuses on works that seek their own language through subjectivity and experimentation. The selected works will be part of the festival’s archive.

The aim of the festival is to establish a platform for for both Norwegian and international artists. Our wish is to break boundaries in the selection of video art and visualize a wider cultural diversity of expressions and forms. The purpose of the festival is to inspire the artistic and cultural environments in Norway and to stimulate the audiences’ consciousness of the world around.
