3rd IN OUT Festival is the first one that can be called international. We have received video shorts from 10 countries: Canada, USA, UK, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Greece, Germany, Czech Republic and Poland.

The Jury of the 3rd IN OUT Festival includes: Witoslaw Czerwonka (Academy of Fine Arts, Gdansk), Marco Mancuso (DIGICULT.IT) and Jason Waite (independent curator). Not only the organizer of the Festival but also the Jury was impressed by the outstanding high quality of the submitted videos. 

During the event apart from the main programme there will be a screening of the Polish video KRYZY$ (CRISI$) – curated by Michal Brzezinski, as well as the screening of the works of Polish origin German artist Paul Raschej. Some videos will be featured on the official CD distributed during the Festival.

IN OUT Festival 2009 is an open form searching for all what is the most interesting in contemporary video art. The Festival is created to be sort of a radar and, therefore, no particular topic was given to the participating artists. In principle, the art should not be illustrating the theoretical ideas and academic thesis but it should be the one to foreseen new trends, to initiate them, or to dialog with them. We hope that the variety of festival entries will be a challenge for us as we have to properly put them into theoretical frames based on the projects we receive. We hope that through the variety of projects we would be able to get to the newest, not yet defined artistic pieces, most likely influenced by the geographical and cultural contexts. We will be looking for the references and creative explanations or totally new propositions regarding the pieces already presented by the pioneers of experimental films and video art. The Festival will be the closing event of the Summer Film Workshops.
