The main objective of the event is to offer everyone the chance to express through video art and to show it in front of a wide public. This purpose is also linked to the diffusion and promotion of a video art characterized by rapidity, conciseness and shortness.

Areas of Interest:

Video art, video documentation, digital art

Origin and History:

The event was born at the beginning of the 90’s. Even though it was not the first Italian video festival, it was definitely innovative since it accepted the participation of non-professional. The exhibition is open to anyone and offers the possibility to tackle any kind of topic. Besides the extraordinary openness to a variegated audience and to a wide range of subjects matters, the event is also characterized by the importance it confers to conciseness and rapidity: the only binding condition imposed upon the participants, in fact, is the 1 minute duration.

Over the years Videominuto has acquired a great importance in the Italian scene thanks to two characteristics: democracy and conciseness. The event increased also thanks to the collaborations with universities and institutions and thanks to the promotion of workshops and conferences that take place during the exhibition. Following Videominuto’s example many other festivals were born adopting the principle of the 1 minute duration and, in 2005, Videominuto became the promoter of an international network of one minute festival called One world one minute.
