The frame of content of the festival is ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements.
The motto of the 2010 festival is MASH UP, reflected in film programmes, lectures and specials. Today, the reinterpretation and re-coding of media content, works of art and music take place in popular culture and art alike. In the process, mashing up citations and references evolves into the aesthetic, satirical and subversive stylistic device, where it also infringes on the rights of third parties.
