The fifth annual Select Media Festival features video programs, brand new media, anti-comedy, installations, performance programs, and public projects in conjunction with experimental and advanced music. Our goal is to share innovative projects in art and technology as well as socially charged work. The festival is produced by Public Media Institute, and organized by artists, musicians and activists from Chicago.
Select Media Festival 5 opens October 13th and runs through October 23rd in venues across the city. This year we are forming a DIY Media Academy to hone skills on a number of things we think everyone should be doing – that includes making cable access TV shows, starting alt.spaces, creating Videos and music, making personal media archives, learning a few secret histories, and figuring out how to become a little bit more environmentally conscious on a budget.
