Curatorial work on VAICA 2 is in progress.
This year, the festival will be presented entirely online and the proposed dates are from Saturday, 20 November to Saturday, 18 December, 2021.
The screening sessions will be programmed in 4 weekly cycles of 60 to 90 minutes each, running through that month. Beginning with the release of the first set of thematically categorised video works on 20 Nov, these will be released every subsequent Saturday and be accessible for the week. There would be changes of programme on 27 November, 4 December and 11 December, concluding on 18 December. Audiences will be able to view the curated set of videos in any order they like and as many times as they like, through the VAICA web-portal.
Also featured on each Saturday, would be an interactive discussion with one or more of the artists, a cultural critic and the curators with comments and questions from the audience.
The schedule of videos will be announced in November, 2021.
