Digital Fringe is an open access public arts festival that places contemporary screen based media in public locations. It provides artists with access to an extensive network of hundreds of public screens and non-traditional audiences throughout Australia and the world. Screening venues receive a playlist curated from the diverse visual works of animation, abstract, video art, short film, machinima, motion graphics, photography and stills submitted to the Digital Fringe festival via our website – Login and upload your works.

In keeping with the Fringe Festival charter, Digital Fringe is open access and accessible to emerging and established artists, particularly those working in screen based and new media. Submissions are received from all around the world: from professional artists to bedroom doodlers and everybody in between. Artists maintain control of their own copyright.

Screening venues range from busy bars and cafes, bustling shopping centres, walls of TV’s in electrical stores, State and regional libraries, art galleries, and cultural institutions, suburban shop fronts and on massive urban screens in public plazas like Melbourne’s Federation Square. Digital Fringe screens are also appearing in outback Australia, and across the Americas’s, Africa, the UK and Europe. All submissions also play on the Digital Fringe website.

Produced by Horse Bazaar with assistance from Film Victoria and Melbourne Fringe, Digital Fringe 09 will create a web of screen art in public space across Melbourne, Regional Australia and the world!
