Streaming Festival

leave a comment »

The Streaming Festival is an online festival for video art, documentart and animation. It is based in the Netherlands. A point of difference from Portable Film Festival is that they only stream during the period of the festival. And they stream high definition, from what I can tell. They have basically just translated the traditional film festival model to online, which I am unsure about the value of. Short burst festivals in actual locations are great because they bring people together and generate connections and discussion. Will have to tune in to the festival when its happening to see if it achieves those ends. I don’t see any community style pages on their website, but maybe I didn’t look hard enough.
