◆About the First MEIHODO International Youth Visual Media Festival (MIUVEF)

The First MIUVEF will be held in Fukuoka, Japan on Nov 6, 2018.

 

The First MIUVEF collected the candidate work from students of 12 top-notched art colleges in China (Beijing Film Academy, Central Academy of Drama, Academy of Arts & Design in Tsinghua University, Central Academy of Fine Arts, Communication University of China, China Academy of Arts, Nanjing University of the Arts, Communication University of Zhejiang, Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts, Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Institute Of Graphic Communication, and Hebei University of Environmental Engineering), as well as students from 9 Japanese academies specialised in art as follows: Tokyo University of the Arts, Tokyo Polytechnic University, Nihon University College of Art, Osaka University of Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts graduate school, Waseda University graduate school, Kyoto University of Art and Design, Asia University, Nippon Engineering College of Hachioji, and other youth in the industry. So far the number of submitted work has reached 300 pieces, all of which are of high quality from professionals. The categories of the submitted work are story, documentary, animation, 2-D photography, experimental production, smartphone production, and others.

 

The candidates of the First MIUVEF are all college students, undergraduates, graduates, doctoral students, students that are graduated within the past five years, or young professionals without a school certificate. The members of the jury are influential individuals in the industry from Japan, China, the US, Europe, and other countries and regions.

 

The work submitted helps us foresee the future of visual media, as well as the possibilities this form of art could bring to the world in this multimedia era. As young visual media professionals today are using more advanced media techniques to convey their values, building such platform could contribute to the deeper and wider communication, interaction, and experience among these artists, jointly promote the “common destiny” of visual media.

Meanwhile, MIUVEF also aims to elevate the senses and skills of worldwide young professionals as an effort to discover and cultivate competent talents for the global visual media industry.
