XEC Interplay – International Student Experimental and Video Art Showcase

Located in Taicang, at a critical point between Shanghai, Suzhou, and Nanjing, XEC.interplay showcases the most innovative and exciting video works from around the world. We welcome student submissions in video art, avant-garde and experimental short films, animation, fashion films, documentaries, and more.

In August 2024, we will be hosting our first screening of a curated program in downtown Taicang, featuring works from the next generation of visionary creators experimenting with form, technique, and storytelling.

Submission information and deadlines will be confirmed soon.
