10th Cologne International Videoart Festival
Cologne International Videoart Festival is celebrating in 2014 its 10th festival edition, standing unter the topic of “TOTAL ART” (“Gesamtkunstwerk”)
CologneOFF X is showing video as a multi-facetted artistic audio-visual medium to be executed solely by its creator or a group of creators, including filming, cutting, editing, composing, post-producing etc, thus the whole creation in one single hand.
The digitalization of video made it only possible, that artists can create such a total
art work due to the affordability of the entire production. It is not even necessary to have the most advanced professional equipment for creating excellent art works.

human existence into the language of the “moving images”.
– inviting film & video creators – to submit up to 3 videos (max duration 10 minutes, exceptions possible on request)) in following categories
(experimental forms of) film – videoart – documentary, whereby animated and very short
