The Euro American Cinema, Video and Digital Art Exhibition (Muestra Euroamericana de Cine, Video y Arte Digital - MEACVAD) is an annual meeting organized by Alliance Francaise Argentina, Goethe-Institut, and Espacio Fundacion Telefonica, with the support of foreign delegations, universities, and national institutions. During a whole week of activities, performers, directors, theorists, and academicians in visual arts showcase their author-based movies, documentaries, experimental videos and interactive visual arts, to debate about the present status of audiovisual arts and media.
The 2008 edition of MEACVAD focuses on the digital era: digital cinema, online TV, web art, VJs, live events, video games, and cell phones, as means of hyper media production.
Invited guests from America and Europe will converge for a week in Buenos Aires to present their material, showcase their works, offer seminars, and set out a debate about the audiovisual arts, the artistic practices, and the current state of technological transition. MEACVAD presents this year two new publications: "La era Post Analógica", a compilation of the minutes of the event, and "Entre Imágenes", by Raymond Bellour.
