Rotterdam VHS Festival

Thursday, June 26, 2014, 8:00 pm, $7-$10

Rotterdam_VHS_Festival_02“The Rotterdam VHS Festival was started in 2001 by visual artists Niels Post, Jeroen Kuster, Han Hoogerbrugge and Leon Duenk. At that time we were all involved in making short videos and we looked at organising a video festival as a natural extention to our own visual art practice. Since it’s foundation we have organised 18 editions of the festival. Every once in a while we also put together special compilation programs to screen abroad. Our programs show a wide range of works from naratives to perfomances to mini-documentaries to music-videos to animation. From high production value to crusty squatter kids. Our selection criteria are based on our personal tastes and preferences and are therefore completely unreliable and un-trustworthy :-).

The Rotterdam VHS Festival is best seen in a cinematic set-up (as in a something to sit on, sound and a videoprojection). For more
