This prestigious programme, presented by Lo schermo dell’arte, supports emerging European artists working with moving images. Eight artists will be selected to develop original projects with international curators and producers with the support of the VISIO Production Fund, now €35,000. The fund supports the creation of new works, with travel expenses covered thanks to Human Company.

The participants are selected in partnership with Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan), AV-arkki (Helsinki), Careof (Milan), Cité internationale des arts (Paris), De Ateliers (Amsterdam), Gasworks (London), Hangar (Barcelona), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Le Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporains (Tourcoing), Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (Amsterdam), Spike Island (Bristol), Städelschule (Frankfurt), Villa Romana (Florence), WIELS Contemporary Art Centre (Brussels).

Selected works will premiere at the 2025 Festival and join the collections of partner institutions.
