Athens, 1-9 December 1999
 
For the second consecutive 
year Athens will host the International Festival of Film and New Media on Art 
(IFFNMA). This is an international multidisciplinary event that aims on the 
discovery  of new voices and new directions in cinema. At the same time it 
explores the new directions visual language has taken by devoting a big part of 
its program to the presentation of new media based projects on art. This 
yearÎ?s selection is composed by documentary films and videos (both analog and 
digital) as well as cd-roms, web sites, and on-line documentaries, on painting, 
sculpture, architecture, design, dance, theatre, cinema, photography, animation, 
music, video art, literature, poetry, fashion, landscape art, multimedia art, 
net art, perfomance art, as well as museology and 
restoration.
 
The programs-venues these year are: 
 
ART IN FOCUS - films and videos on all arts in 
competition
 
DIGITART - cd-roms on all arts in competition, 
web sites (for the first time) on art and net art sites not in 
competition
 
MEDIATRIUM - interactive video installations, 
multimedia perfomances
 
 
International SYMPOSIUM IN ARCHITECTURE - 
"ATHENS: A METROPOLIS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY 
EMERGES"  3-4 December 
Four themes will be presented and 
discussed:
 
1) THE MYTH OF THE CITY - 
Incorporation of the trace of the ancient city into its modern counterpart, and 
a redefinition of the relationship between the city, the landscape and the 
sea;

2) THE LARGE SCALE AND PUBLIC SPACE- Architectural gestures on the large 
scale capable of transforming the crisis-ridden public space of the city and of 
having an impact on its 'common taste' and ethos;
3) THE CITY AND 'DIFFERENCE' 
- The social approaches and political practices which will mobilise 
the forces of difference and individuality within the metropolitan formation; 
and
4) ART, TECHNOLOGY AND THE CITY -Artistic and technological applications 
which will permeate real and virtual space, radically transforming the 
experience of the urban landscape and of life in the city 
itself.
HYPERTOPOS - The Symposium will be complemented by 
a specially curated program of films, cd-roms and websites on architecture. The 
theme of this program is Man, City and 
Media.

world. The program will be presented as outdoor happening in huge 
screens.
