It's a strong manifestation of the digital scene in Tehran and the people who make it possible, it features Iranian digital artists as well as far reaching international network of collaborators thanks to an ongoing residency program with NODE Forum for Digital Arts. The initiative enables joint projects of one Iranian and one German artist who work together at both festivals; this year it will be Lilian Nejatpour and Simon Weckert.
