International Kansk video festival
Call for entries

for video and film artists

International Kansk Video Festival (Russia/Siberia) is not a conventional
film festival. It is an experiment in time and space. The place
. the
small Siberian city of Kansk, was found on the Internet by chance and
selected as its name correlates with the Cannes Film Festival, Kansk in
the Russian language is pronounced the same as Cannes. I grew as an
artistic joke
.Siberia having it’s own ‘Festival de Cannes’.

festival of art discoveries will not stop in pioneer research of our
visual future.
