DigiFestival.net 2006 - Festival of art in streaming video

July 04, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
DigiFestival.net, the first multimedia art festival in streaming video, adds to the sponsoring institutions the government of District of Milan who, after a careful review and discussion on the project, considered to support the festival for its value and internationality.

DigiFestival.net, added a sixth important art discipline in this second edition: Video Art.
The Art in Vision staff considered to offer artists another category to include those works produced and thought for the digital realm, and non strictly having reference with cinema, in which the visual communication broke the traditional obstacles among the various art genres.

In these two months from the opening of subscription artists from all over the world joined the festival: Italians, Americans, Canadians, Russians, Africans, and considering the number – wished, nevertheless surprising – it can be reasonably foreseen that all the 2005 edition numbers will be at least doubled in 2006, multiplying the number of artists in the contest and the events on the Italian territory.

An important partnership has been closed between Digifestival.net and the entertainment service agency ULTRA Promotion (http://www.ultraitaly.com) and with label ULTRATEMPO Records in order to put in action the realization of the DigiFestival.net Events on October/November 2006 in many venues of the city of Milan.
In the closing of this edition will not be missed the usual appointment with Mercafir (Florence). The exact events dates will be communicated shortly through our newsletters and press releases and in the news section of the website.

Continues the promotion of the winning videos of the 2005 Edition of DigiFestival.net – Cantiere of virtual art. The five winning videos will be featured in Saint Petersburg during the Open Cinema Festival – II International open-air festival. The event dedicated to short movies and animation opens to new means of contemporary visual communication and will take place on August 2006 in the wonderful frame of one of the beaches inside the Saint Peter and Paul Fortress, in the heart of the city.
