Introduction by Karpo Godina

The Festival was held for the first time in 1982, as Alternative film, and intended to explore the domain of film production which is alternative to comercial film, all modes of alternative, experimental, art, short, radical film thinking… Since 1985 the Festival went on as Alternative film/video, which establishes and further explores the double relation: of alternative - film and video - production to comercial and classic, but also the relation between film and video aesthetics and production. Untill 1990, the festival included in its programs several hundreds of works of Yugoslav authors.  

After a decade-long pause from 1991-2002, the festival re-emerged in 2003 in its new edition. According to allpresent tendencies of re-integration inside the ex-Yugoslav region, the Festival tends to explore and reconstruct the image of alternative film and video production in ex/Yugoslav area in past decade. In 2006 the Festival becomes international, wishing to enable insight into the new tendencies on international scene, and also to enable wider contextualization for the Serbian and regional scene.
