The Magikal Charm Experimental Video & Film Festival was developed to offer
Independent, Underrepresented, 'Outsider' Artists opportunity to Screen their Projects
At an Historic New York venue; ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES.
Through its first six 'Seasons', MCEVF has been privileged to Showcase the Works
Of more than 120 'EXPERIMENTALISTS' from the U.S. and Abroad.
The Fest has consistently drawn Projects of deeply personal, unique character.
Conceptualists have shared their very personal 'language' understanding &
Interpretation of experience, providing the Audience with a 'Direct Experience'
Of our shared humanity.

not been successful in obtaining grant funding from, for example N.Y.C.'s
