More information

To make a large audience acquainted with media art, The Netherlands Media Art Institute pursues an active distribution policy for videoworks and media installations. These are presented at national and international festivals, manifestations and exhibitions at various art institutions, and are shown for educational purposes. The videoworks and installations are documented in the on-line public catalogue. In the mediatheque all the videoworks from the collection can be viewed on viewing sets.

Video works from the NIMk collection are available for rental on DVD (PAL), Betacam SP (PAL) or as HD video file. For all other formats (including NTSC) we charge additional production costs, determined by the length of the work.

New videoworks

Artists are cordially invited to propose their works for distribution purposes. The distribution department at the Netherlands Media Art Institute pursues a non-individual promotional policy for media art, whereby videoworks and installations are presented to professional parties, institutes and relations. Submitted videoworks are viewed and selected by a special selection committee consisting of distribution and exhibition staff of the institute. Previews can be send in at any time, preferably on DVD and please add a cv and synopsis on paper.  Due to the large amount of submissions we cannot personally contact all applicants. Preview materials will not be returne unless otherwise agreed.
