AAVE – ALTERNATIVE AUDIOVISUAL EVENT
AAVE Festival is a yearly international event organized in Helsinki since 2010. Our mission is to represent, promote and showcase different forms of audiovisual arts and therefore rejoin different genres and audiences. This is not a mere film or media art festival but it aims at opening the gates into the vast world of moving image. All other satellite projects organized after the festival are labelled as AAVE Circuits.
