The Participatory Video Festival is an initiative of three PhD researchers from Ghent University.

The Festival’s aim is to explore the possibilities and value of participatory video for social sciences. Participatory video appeals to many students and researchers, but is not institutionalized (yet) as a ‘conventional’ research method. The Festival’s aim is to push the PV agenda and learn from the most innovative and relevant video-using trends in- and outside academia; in participatory action research, visual ethnography, visual arts, activism, advocacy work and so on.

The festival welcomes finished and unfinished video-materials of both early career as well as established scholars exploring human cultures, economies, politics and histories in their many facets. We also welcome submissions from filmmakers, artists and activists who include a research aspect in their projects. The Festival is open to all forms and styles of filmmaking, without restriction to theme and length.
