The 1st International Motion Festival, Cyprus

The 1st International Motion Festival (IMF) will be organized in March 2012 in Nicosia, Cyprus by the Department of Arts of the European University Cyprus, and it will be the first of its kind both in Cyprus and the broader Mediterranean and Middle East region. It aims to bring together film-makers, video artists, computer animators, graphic designers and their audience and to familiarize the public with what has traditionally remained as the “invisible art”: motion graphics.

Even though motion graphics has been around for decades as a discipline, it is only recently that it has taken leaps forward and been acknowledged as another art form. The 1st IMF aims to open a forum for the presentation of the most contemporary and most creative work in the field of motion graphics and thus to be established as a pioneering event for the future, that will promote innovative and cutting-edge work.
