About Media Facades Festival Europe 2010
MEDIA FACADES FESTIVAL EUROPE 2010 (MFF2010) is an urban media pilot project
that interconnects seven European cities through the existing infrastructure
of urban screens and media facades sited in public spaces.
Artists and media designers will show especially developed art projects
Europe wide, through screenings and Joint Broadcasting Events, for the
circulation of cultural exchange. Media facades will be transformed into
local stages, connecting public audiences virtually with participating
places and opening a global window to create dialogue, to share dreams and
exchange ideas.

Curatorial Programme
The following main curatorial topics have been developed out of the
collaboratively selected screening projects. From 27 August to 2 October
2010 each festival day has a special focus on one of the following themes.

*	Connected Cities: Joint Broadcasting projects that happen
simultaneously and interactively across the borders
*	Urban Activism: Reclaim the Screens! An activist approach to opening
screens for the urban community
*	Human Screens: Human processes are visualised on media facades
*	Organic Cities: Public Data projects use information resources from
the environments and develop a real-time software programme for live
*	Public Playing: Games designed as an interaction catalyst for the
public audience
*	European Dialogue: Projects that especially support intercultural
exchange and connect the local scenes through the media facades
infrastructure of the participating cities
*	Citizens Journalism: Research and participatory projects of local
*	Recontextualise: A shared video platform on a central server to
create local screening programmes
