Festival Overview

Dedicated to the exhibition and nurturing of diverse forms of media art, Antimatter is one of the premier showcases of experimentation in film, video, audio and emerging timebased forms. Encompassing screenings, installations, performances and media hybrids, Antimatter provides a noncompetitive setting in Victoria, British Columbia, free from commercial and industry agendas.

The 20th annual Antimatter runs October 13 to 28, 2017.

In addition to single channel works for screening programs we invite proposals for media-based performance and installation projects, as well as curated programs. Contact us for more information.

As Antimatter celebrates its 20th anniversary, we are particularly interested in work that addresses conceptual, technological and social change over the past two decades.
