Japan's Personal Video Compo reaches 28th year


Next year will mark no less than the 28th JVC Tokyo Video Festival, an annual event that must be one of the longest running of its ilk. This is a no-holds-barred artistic expressionism contest and with 28 years of experience and I’ll bet the judges don’t shock easily any more. Now that over 3,000 international entries are expected, standards are going to be pretty high; last years highlights included “Grainy Day” and “Road to war: Part 2” so I don’t think sending in your Big Brother application video is going to cut it…

If you think you’ve got what it takes to explore the limits of the handheld video camera as the canvas and brush of the 21st century then get your clips over to Tokyo Video Festival Office, Victor Company of Japan, Limited Victor Building 3F, 1-7-1 Shinbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-0004, Japan between June 10th and September 30th. First prize is 500,000 yen and winners will be announced next February.
