The TINFF Media Arts supports a variety of interactive artworks that are created by the recording of sounds, visual images, or the use of new technologies. They go beyond the fields of film, audio, video, and computer, digital, and electronic art, because these artworks are a form of creative expressions which can be exhibited in multiple platforms including art galleries, in movie theatres, on the web, in public space and even on smartphones. We believe that with the advancement of technology, artists are prone to using new tools to reflect the world around them.
