Over the past 10 years, this video festival has been nurtured as a place to create diverse values as well as new representations, and each award-winning work presented exactly this new value.

The theme “LIFE” is a global topic of interests that reflects the current trends of the times. The cycle of life, conflicts and changes in lifestyles and values are interspersed with the element of the times to fuse together and form a beautiful show.
