The motto of the 2010 festival is MASH UP, reflected in film programmes, lectures and specials.

Today, the reinterpretation and re-coding of media content, works of art and music take place in popular culture and art alike. In the process, mashing up citations and references evolves into the aesthetic, satirical and subversive stylistic device, where it also infringes on the rights of third parties.

The EMAF is one of the most influential forums of international Media Art. As a meeting point for artists, curators, lenders, gallery owners and an audience of specialists, the festival has had a great impact on the topic and aesthetics of Media Art. Each year the festival offers its visitors a current overview of experimental films, installations, performances, digital formats and hybrid forms, ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements.

At the festival an international jury will present the >EMAF Award< for a trend-setting work in Media Art and the >Dialogpreis< of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of intercultural
exchange. Furthermore, the jury of the German Federal Association of Film Journalists will award the prize for the best German experimental film.

// CINEMA Experimental shorts and feature films, music videos, new forms of narration and documentation as well as specials

// EXHIBITION The latest installations from 21 April to 23 May 2010 in the Kunsthalle Dominikanerkirche..

// EXPANDED MEDIA Artistic projects of digital media, performances, music and sound projects, as well as the latest concepts from expanded media.

// MEDIA CAMPUS The contact and project exchange for new projects, tendencies and training concepts from the media universities, academies of art and design colleges of Europe.

// CONGRESS Discussions and issues covering the various elements of the festival in talks, workshops, artist presentations and panel discussions.

We warmly invite you to discover the fascination of the experimental with us in April 2010.
