Impakt is an independent organisation for contemporary sound and image. Our
main projects are the Impakt Festival, the Impakt Events and Impakt Online.
The Impakt Festival is an international manifestation: installations, film,
video, fine arts, new media, music and live performances. Each year there
are several thematic programs, as well as an expanded panorama program. The
thematic program will focus on current artistic developments and put them in
a broader, social or historic perspective. The panorama program each year
presents a general overview of the most idiosyncratic and exciting film and
Every year about 125 installations, videos, websites, films, performances,
cd-roms and concert from approximately 30 different countries around the
world are on display. Interviews and discussions are held every day in the
