20th Anniversary Festival : 2010
As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, Freewaves will presented Video on the Loose at LACMA’s Late Night Art Event on Saturday, June 26, 2010,. The event animated the museum’s north piazza with 20+ experimental media art works produced over the past two decades. The videos spanned perspectives from the identity politics of the 1990s to post-9/11 reality checks, from deep inside the mass media landscape to observations from media makers in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
11th Festival : 2008
“HollyWould,” the theme for this year’s festival, is a playful and evocative turn on Hollywood, both as an international symbol of the American entertainment industry and as a Los Angeles neighborhood very much in flux. The festival will transform the iconic Hollywood boulevard into a massive, multi-faceted screening room for experimental videos, films and media art from every continent. Selected works will be projected onto buildings, displayed on LCD screens inside stores and installed in storefront windows
The showcase will present experimental media art from across the globe at art venues in HollyWould in October 2008 and through the Freewaves web site. Media art works include experimental video and film (narrative, documentary, art, animation, etc.), DVDs, web sites, simple installations, and video billboards. Works from the festival will also be video-streamed on the Internet. Competitive selection process was conducted by a group of international and local curators with diverse specialties and backgrounds.
