AND Festival 2009 \\ Liverpool, UK \\ 23 – 27 September

Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival premiered in 2009, welcoming audiences to experience the best in new cinema and media art in a celebration that spilled from screens and galleries into the streets and imaginations of Liverpool. AND created a space where artists and filmmakers could offer striking new perspectives, and visitors could enjoy, discuss and interact with ideas, in a festival that questioned the normal and championed a different approach. Audiences were told to expect an eclectic array of screenings, installations, online projects, public realm interventions, workshops and live events, with a distinctive emphasis on ideas and discussion.
