The NOT STILL ART FESTIVAL was created in 1996 to celebrate abstract and non-narrative electronic motion imaging and its relationship to music and sound.  The visual uniqueness of the electronic medium is a determining aesthetic element in work screened at the Festival.

"These passionate [abstract] compositions are not limited to the purely visual celebration of what pleases the eyes. They reach beyond the world of the senses to symbolize the forces that activate life and the physical world with all their overwhelming complexity." from Rudolf Arnheim's essay "What Became of Abstraction?", p. 22, To The Rescue of Art U. of CA Press, 1992.
