SIMULTAN is an annual festival for video and new media art, which takes place in May, in Timisoara , Romania.
Annually, the festival offers a selection of short video-films, a series of live performance audio-visual projects and presentations/lectures.
SIMULTAN03 exploits the idea of audio-visual and socio-cultural Interference , the way in which technology and society give rise to new forms of artistic expression by using the new media.
Through the two previous editions, the Simultan festival wished to investigate video art and to what extent a project of this kind can be a challenge, both for the artist and for the public.
Simultan is a platform for the development of audio-video concepts, wishing to support and promote the new movements and trends in contemporary culture, like the digital media, the video art and the experiment in sound and electronic music.
The festival wishes to sustain and to stimulate the creative ways of the most modern visions of perceiving and recording the cultural realities in contemporary art of those who belong to the contemporary spirit, through presenting the current processes and the most innovating and revolutionary tendencies.
The event follows the ideologies of other well-known similar events and aims to establish new cultural bonds on the stage of the Romanian and international art.
