The New York Women’s Video Festival

From 1972 to 1980, the New York Women’s Video Festival is the primary showcase for work by American woman video makers. This landmark annual event is founded by Steina Vasulka in 1972 to address the dearth of work by women in a video art show she organized at The Kitchen Center for Video and Music in New York earlier that year. The festival is coordinated for the duration of its run by Susan Milano, who travels with it to various national and international venues in Buffalo, San Francisco, Tampa, France, and Belgium.
