Intro

Welcome to FOKUS Video art Festival 2018.
The festival takes places February - March 2018.

Open Call is now closed and we would like to thank everyone that participated.
The selected videos will be informed mid-January.

The best works will be selected by a jury and then made available to a Copenhagen audience at various places. For the 2017 programme more than 10,000 people checked out the festival works that could be experienced at locations such as the department store Illum, the Copenhagen Main Public Library and the cinemas Grand, Gloria and Vester Vov Vov. Once again in 2108, FOKUS is going to lift video art out of the traditional settings in which art is presented to meet its audience at carefully selected city spots – indoors and outdoors – and on your mobile phone or tablet. Shortlisted videos will compete for the FOKUS First Prize of €1000 and two Runners-Up Prizes of €500 each-

FOKUS video art festival is an annually recurring event for international video art, arranged by Nikolaj Kunsthal.
”FOKUS is the only video art festival in Denmark and therefore helps highlighting an element of visual art that is undergoing a spectacular development. Both well-known names and new talents experiment with the video medium, employing new ways of story-telling and technological platforms. FOKUS endeavours to assist this development while at the same time making video art visible to a larger audience”, says Andreas Brøgger, Head of Nikolaj Kunsthal.
