transmediale was founded in 1988 as VideoFilmFest, a side-project of the Berlin Berlinale’s 'International Forum of New Cinema'. The co-founder and artistic director Micky Kwella intended to offer a platform to electronic media productions not accepted at traditional film festivals such as the Berlinale.
Within the following 20 years, the festival steadily evolved. In 1997/98 it changed its name from 'VideoFest' to 'transmediale' in order to reflect upon the festival’s expanding programme which now embraced a wide spectrum of multimedia-based art forms. In 1999 club transmediale was founded. Focusing primarily on electronic music and club culture, it is organised by a curatorially and financially independent team.
