The 26th of October 1984, the first videocollective was organized in Israel by Natan Karczmar at the occasion of Artcom Israel 84, a symposium on the Esthetics of communication held at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Haifa Museum and tzavta Tel Aviv.
Since then, Natan Karczmar has organized videocollectives in many countries and more recently, in 2002, a partnership has been established with the International Videoformes Festival in Clermont Ferrand, France, were the videocollectives produced in the world are shown each year during the March festival. Videoformes has also become a permanent archive for these videos.
The videocollectives have a duration of 3 minutes of footage and 10 seconds of titles. The videomaker is free to film any subject whenever and wherever he or she wishes. The manner is either experimental (video art), documentary, fiction, animation, or a mixing of these styles. The format is DV.
2009 will be the 25th anniversary of the videocollectives. At this occasion, the Festival Vidéoformes in Clermont-Ferrand and the Tel Aviv Cinematheque will commemorate the event by presenting a videocollective retrospective.
