Your Kontinent Festival

Your Kontinent is a variation on the term “Urkontinent” coined by German scientist and geophysicist, Alfred Wegener, for Earth’s first continent – the first single, unbroken landmass. If it were to exist today, this continent would contain a rich mosaic of ethnicities and cultures co-existing in one place. Guided by this powerful vision, the Your Kontinent: Film and Media Arts Festival reflects Cinevolution’s vision of an integrated, socially cohesive society which not only accepts, but embraces, difference.

Each year, the Your Kontinent Festival presents a compelling collection of film and media art works that challenge our perceptions of reality and illuminate the interconnectedness of the world. Featuring over 30 local and international films, more than 100 multidisciplinary artists, and the newest, most cutting-edge digital media experiments, the Your Kontinent Festival takes audiences to the farthest margins of human possibility.

With every program, we ask: What does your continent look like? What more can it be?
