Grow the map of influence with a global perspective
Media Art Category


As in previous years, ifva now accepts entries for short films and animation from Asian countries and expands this year to the media arts as well. The category “Interactive Media” is also renamed “Media Art”. These changes come about with the diversification for nationalities and artistic media in the hope that more media artists will be able to join the ifva platform and have access to more opportunities than before.
