III International Bad Video Art Festival will take place in Moscow, Russia, in spring 2019.

We are looking for videos which are at the intersection of bad art, bad painting and bad cinema. We propose to study extreme forms of video art and single out certain video art works as bad videos or "B-videos". Join us if you are interested in the issues of quality and boundaries of art, or just love video art.

We haven't had enough. We want more:
- technically poor (low resolution, over-/underexposed, unstabilized, wrong focus, poor sound or no sound at all, bad editing, wrong color correction) videos;
- videos filmed without any purpose or concept, except the idea of making a bad video;
- worthless videos of no special interest;
- camp, trash, b-videos.

Before sending a request please read Rules & Terms carefully. Please don't forget that this is a video art festival, not a movie festival.

- NO MOVIES, just video art!
- MAXIMUM duration 10 minutes
- MAXIMUM 3 works per artist
- if your video has a language dialog other than English or Russian, use English subs
- we DON'T accept feature films, animation, stock videos, films made by children, family home videos, erotica, porn.

    This cool DIY video art fest in Moscow chose my film Hierve El Agua (The Water Boils). Looks like a wide ranging international selection. Wish I could go and see all the videos! I think "bad" is a compliment. Follow my photography & films on Instagram @lienav Thank you == Spasibo! Liena Vayzman, New York
