Founded by an independent group of Greek artists in 2005 in Kalamata, it seeks to stimulate the creation of original video art, to help spread it and develop relevant research. Through collaborations and exhanges with major international festivals and organizations, it has been recognized as one of the most successful and interesting video art platforms internationally and as an important cultural exchange point for Greek and international video art. It also provides an alternative meeting point for emerging and established artists and a communication hub between artists, organizations, festivals and art spaces around the world.
