25 years of MuVi Award for the best German music video. A competition, that was viewed critically by some in its first year, spans almost a generation. Introduced in 1999, to put the music video as an artistic form of short film in a new context, the MuVi Award has developed its own profile over the years - and brought forth many personalities in the process. It's time for an excursion into MuVi history at the dense edges of pop culture, into a special collection with subversive as well as explosive works between "heart and brain".
On the occasion of the anniversary, we will show all 1st prizes from 1999 to 2022 - here on the Channel and during the festival on April 30 in the cinema.
From April 1 to 29, a new video will go online each day - together with a video statement by the directors and/or musicians, which can be anything: film, poem, credits, anecdote, trailer, greetings or even music video.
Thank you very much to all participants for your contributions and your time.
In memory of Françoise Cactus, Klaus Lemke and Mark Sikora.
