‘Rebel Video’ a project previously featured in the IVSA Showcase visits the USA, Canada, and Europe. It’s a book launch event with film screenings and discussion. The aim of the tour is to stimulate discussion about the video movement of the 70s and 80s and its relevance for film/video activism today.

On behalf of the IVSA, I would like to thank everyone who stood for a position in our recent elections to the IVSA Board. Although not everyone could be successful, we very much appreciate the commitment that members have shown towards the work of the IVSA. We also want to thank all our members who took the time to vote.
Here is a short summary of the survey we circulated among the 2017 conference participants along with some reflections. Thanks to all those who found the time to respond to the survey. We are taking this very useful feedback into account in the planning of our next conference – co-hosted by the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Evry, in France, June 25-28, 2018.
We recently had an issue that prevented some members from renewing membership to the IVSA. The issue related to a rare error in the website theme. This is now resolved and members should now be able to renew as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
