Celebrating women working in video and new media 

FEMMEBIT brings together artists and the public for a celebration of video as a medium, creating an ideal viewing experience for screen-based art. We recognize the contributions of both the high-profile and emerging video artists in Los Angeles.

The first annual festival takes place November 18-20, 2016 at Human Resources and focuses on Los Angeles women working in video art and related technologies.

“The appeal of video for women might come from the medium’s relative newness — there are no old masters glowering from the textbook pages. ‘Women could enter into it without this art-historical legacy,’ [Diana] Thater says. ‘There is no male-dominated history, so there’s more freedom.”
