Mission Statement

An online magnet for the media arts, Freewaves is a grassroots yet global arts organization connecting innovative, relevant, independent new media art from around the world. Freewaves' biennial and international festivals are the largest showcases of experimental media arts in the country.

Description

Freewaves is dedicated to the creative exhibition of new media from around the world. We facilitate cross-cultural dialogues by inventing dynamic new media exhibition forms at experimental and established venues throughout Los Angeles. Freewaves also advocates for creation and access to ground breaking alternative media. Presently, Freewaves is extending its reach to more international artists and audiences.

Our next festival, HollyWould..., is in October 2008 along Hollywood Boulevard between Vine and Highland. The project will transform the iconic boulevard into a multi-faceted screening room for experimental videos, films and media art from throughout the world for ten days, October 10-20, 2008. Selected works will be exhibited throughout the neighborhood, projected onto buildings, displayed on LCD screens inside stores, and installed in storefront windows. The festival will also feature screenings at American Cinematheque, sidewalk sound installations, a film and musical event at the Hollywood & Highland Center, as well as portals connected to the festival's unique web-based content.

HollyWould... will showcase 100 works chosen from an estimated 2000 submissions, with an additional 100 works on the Freewaves web site.
