Over the span of two weeks, the festival presents a diverse program of experimental film and video art from around the world. The selection was made from hundreds of received applications to highlight recent experiments in these fields. The screenings are followed by special sessions led by guest filmmakers and program curators to present their work and discuss it with the audience. The 5th Cairo Video Festival seeks to become a platform for all those experimenting with the mediums of film and video.

The festival is organized by MEDRAR, a space for young artists to host conversations on the state of contemporary art, initiate and carry out collaborative projects and engage in a process of collective learning.
