New Forms Media Society is a non-profit society and media arts organization founded in 2000 that nurtures and connects local and international artists, thinkers, practitioners, and the public through the annual New Forms Festival. The NFF is part of a larger, international, media and electronic music festival movement, which explores the ever-changing and evolving world of art, while creating a platform for artistic growth. The society wishes to make new media art, music, film, technology-based installation and performance accessible to a wider audience.
