Running for its eighth year at the iconic Tribeca Film Center in NYC, the Video Art & Experimental Film Festival introduces New York audiences every fall to the most conceptually and aesthetically arresting short films from around the world. The festival embraces a boundary-expanding spectrum of work that includes narrative, music video, animation, stop motion, remix, documentary, and more.

Screenings are followed by lively Q&As and panel discussions moderated by internationally best selling author Mark Alpert, where artists are invited onto the stage to discuss their work and answer audience questions. The three day festival culminates to a final celebratory night at the landmark DCTV French Château, where the year’s top works are compiled into a special screening, followed by a gala reception where artists, panelists, and the general public enjoy food and an open bar.

Past selected artists have been featured alongside prominent video directors such as David LaChapelle, Marie Schuller, and Kalup Linzy, and the panel discussions have attracted prestigious artists and scholars including Alanna Heiss (founder of MoMA PS1), David Ross (former director of the Whitney and SFMOMA), Jason Sondhi (co-founder of Short of the Week and former lead curator of Vimeo Staff Picks), and Ziggy Levin (executive producer for Art + Commerce and faculty member at SVA).
