MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, April 25, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The annual event is a cultural celebration that focuses on three different areas of activity - expositions, cinema and music.
As such, there are three main events that make up the festival - VIDCF film competition, which awards prizes to aspiring movie makers, Village Art - a collection of contemporary pieces that focus on new media - and Village Music, which features a range of DJs and VJs.
With a history dating back to 2006, it was launched with the intention of providing greater visibility to the notion of artistic works being heavily influenced by information and communication technologies.
"Cosmopolitan and international by nature, this is a festival that stands out from the European cultural panorama," the organisers said.
Different venues around the city play host to the events that comprise the festival, meaning people staying in Lisbon hotels should have no problem getting involved in the action.
Tickets for the different attractions at the event vary in price depending on the exhibition, show or screening being attended. They can be purchased from 2.50 EUR.
