On 22-23 May, 2009 the fourth edition of Video Vortex will take place in
Split, Croatia. The Department of Film and Video at the Academy of Arts
University of Split and Platforma 9.81 will organize the event, in
collaboration with the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam. After
previous events on online video and responses to YouTube in Brussels,
Amsterdam and Ankara, this event will focus on the moving image on the Web.

We invite contributions for the following themes:

- Telepresence and Web Aesthetics
Video meets Web aesthetics: how is the phenomenon of 'telepresence'
incorporated in various art forms, such as music, theater, visual arts,
literature and cinema? What are underlying aesthetics and what are the
specific interface contexts?

- Social Cinema
Has cinema found its way onto the Web? Did it change the essential features
of cinema? What are the new possibilities of collaborative production? Does
the future of film museums and cinematheques lie in online cinematic

- Architecture and the Moving Image
Online video offers an immense database of moving images, which could be
displayed in urban public space. What are the existing cinematographic
visions of the future of the moving image in public space? (In films such as
Blade Runner, Minority Report, Children of Men, etc.) Which visions can be
directly implemented, and which will remain film scenography?

- Video Sharing
What are the standards and alternatives for sharing, licensing and hosting
moving images on the Web? This theme explores issues around the
distribution, licensing, collaborative production, and video hosting.

- Technology and Politics of the Moving Image
What is the future of visual browsers? How does moving image production
relate to cultural, technological and political dominance? Open standards
and codex politics. Surveillance issues.

- Literature and Online Video Narrativity
Narrative strategies on the Web. From screenplay writing with hypertext, the
broadcasted self and narrative avatars to collective narrative processes
leading to Web literature, tag based video narrativity, public journalism
and performative real-time literature.

Please send in a 500-word abstract and a short bio to Dan Oki (danoki [at]
xs4all.nl) before February 5, 2009.

During the Video Vortex in Split we will present five cinema events:
1) upload cinema 2) mobile phone cinema 3) social cinema 4) cinematic data
base 5) performative cinema
