Medrar for Contemporary Art

8 July 2013 - 21 July 2013

5th Cairo Video Festival | Medrar for Contemporary Art

The Cairo Video Festival is a platform to start a conversation between video-artists, curators and the public,
and a space for artists to showcase their innovative, low budget video art productions that are selected
according to quality, authenticity and conviction in investigation of subject matter.
Through ten days of screenings, artists talks, and discussions, the Cairo Video Festival fosters this growing
interest in new media production and experimentation to expose audiences to artists and concepts from
around the world.

The festival is Medrar’s first contribution to the art scene in 2005 and is the project through which Medrar

world, would be shown in the heart of this vigorous city.
