“ADAPT” a documentary about the first ADAF ONLINE festival
The International Festival for Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival (ADAF),the pioneer longest living institution dedicated to digital culture in the country (est.2005), is honoured to present ADAPT, a documentation about the first ADAF ONLINE festival. The first Digital Art Online Streaming Festival of Greece that took place in 2020-2021 at the world wide web, launching the Online Cultural Reality.
This stand alone online experience through a plethora of categories that spread from video to interactive web art, VR experiences, 3D virtual tours and streaming live events.
ADAPT is a film that depicts the structures and challenges of creating an online event, explaining at the same time how something exclusively digital remains as alive and breathing as a physical event.
ADAPT is narrating the story of ADAF ONLINE through the eyes of the director Anastasia Macmanous.
Anastasia was born in Athens, in the previous century. She studied audiovisual arts at the Ionian University and graduated with an integrated master with honours. She has worked as a set photographer in short films and Greek tv series. Anastasia enjoys writing and experimenting with the picture and sound. She has discovered that several compounds form the arts and since then she is experimenting with the analogous posologies and the hidden tangent of zero opacity, between science and art.
