The safety of our festival guests and our production team is of utmost importance to us.


Video Art Festival Turku (VAFT) follows the recommendations of Finnish healthcare officials as well as the general guidelines set for public events. We aim to make the festival and all our events as safe and pleasant as possible by taking on different safety measures. We hope that people attending to the festival events will also take the safety instructions into account. We do not recommend that those at higher risk from COVID-19 attend any of our events.


We provide free admission to all events.
