L’association des Instants Vidéo Numériques et poétiques

Friche la Belle de Mai - 13331 Marseille Cedex 03 – France


Contact: 04 95 04 96 24 - administration@instantsvideo.com


Who are we

The festival Les Instants Vidéo (international video art and multimedia festival) wants to be a space/time where destinies come across each other, where new cartographies of creation can be weaved, where new lines can be opened in direction to new comets...


Les Instants Vidéo Numériques et poétiques is a non-profit art organization (association law 1901). It inherited from the Festival founded in 1988 in Manosque (Department of Alpes de Haute Provence). Since 2004, it is based in Marseille and cultivates nomadism. We are always looking for the encounters of publics and artists that we like to name the electronic poets.


What we aim to

Support and promote video art and multimedia creation

with the multiplication of number of screenings all the year long, in France and abroad,

with the diversification of the places/spaces where we present our programms (cinemas, galleries, universities, schools of arts, prisons, theatres, museums, social centers, schools, media librairies....) and with a deep complicity of our partners,

with publishing (the magazines BREF, 24 Images, artists biographies...),

with the organization of theorical and practical training,

with forging the mobility and the fellowship/connection of the works of art and the artists,

with the development of audiances, awared, interested, critical and lively.


Favorise the encounters audiances-works of art-artists, as an invitation to see and think the world, to cross the glances, sharing knowledge, experiences, understanding, imagination of the other, of elsewhere.    


What we do

All the year long, we are making stops in France and abroad, to lead the following activities:

the festival Les Instants Vidéo nomad, every year in autonm (in 2007, it was 71 days, 6 countries, 15 towns, 25 different spots, 456 works of art coming from 54 countries, and more than 65 artists invited),

workshops of awareness and of creation, as laboratories of experimentation, inspiration and education,

conferences about the history of video art and about the international creation,

international screenings that we always accompany and which are written as poems,

development of methods of preservation, archiving and dissemination of multimedia arts (European project eContentPlus GAMA),

(inter)national cooperations shaped like a constellation, in which the artistic creation is approach as an essentiel component of the society, dealing with social, political and cultural issues.
