The Stazione Leopolda in Florence, Italy will host -July 9 to 17, 2009- the event that, since 1997, is dedicated to the most current visions on contemporary architecture and to the discussion on the outcomes of the intense relations that exist between architecture and the media.

The ninth edition of BEYOND MEDIA is titled VISIONS. It will pursue broad visions, in order to collect with a wide outlook the complex transformations of the built environment and to lead the audience's thoughts and consciousness beyond that which is usual, empirical, and visible.

The call for entries to submit videos for the next edition of BEYOND MEDIA is now official, and will lead to the selection of the most interesting works of communication in architecture. Deadline for submissions is extended till 16th February, 2009.

The next edition of the BEYOND MEDIA festival will take place at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence, Italy, July 9-17, 2009. Organized by Image <www.image-web.org> and curated by Marco Brizzi, BEYOND MEDIA has been constantly observing, since 1997, the development of the systems of communication in the field of architecture by evaluating their impact on contemporary architectural production and by promoting quality and research in the advance of communication media for design projects.

BEYOND MEDIA is becoming more and more a meeting point for all those who are interested in discussing the expressions of contemporary architecture. At its core is a dense network of architects, video authors, galleries and communication media.

The festival offers its visitors an articulate and rich program of events. The screening of the videos, which are selected internationally, complement an intense calendar of conferences and workshops with the protagonists of the international debate, and of architecture exhibitions which elaborate on the theme of the festival.

The ninth edition of the Florence festival is titled VISIONS. "It seems as if contemporary architecture, in the last years, lost -says Marco Brizzi in announcing the theme - its ability to pursue broad visions, to collect with a wide outlook the complex transformations of the built environment, to lead its thoughts and consciousness beyond that which is usual, empirical, and visible. The massive production and consumption of architectural images resulted in a greater vicinity, on the part of the general public, to design issues. But, at the same time, they produced an alteration in the way people conceive architecture, and affected the ability and the opportunity for architects to generate visions, and hence theories, which are deeply rooted in our times but, at the same time, are receptive towards new possible scenarios."

As it happened during the past editions of the festival, BEYOND MEDIA will once again present the most interesting works of communication in architecture. Authors of videos devoted to architecture can submit their work to the 2009 edition of the festival. Recent works are expected by architects, artists,   and students. On the official website of the event www.beyondmedia.it   it is possible to find
