A Brief History of Film and Video Art @ Ovada 16.04.2015

Not many people attended so I was among lucky few really to see the films on a big screen, as I don’t think there is many events like this. In fact I have been always on a look out for video art festivals in London but everything seems to have gone digital nowadays (with LUX being an exception on occassions). At Videovada I also attended the Analogue Video Workshop (have been looking for something like it for 7 years!!) and the demonstration of Praxis Live, which was aimed at people who had already experimented with the interactive audio-visual software before.
