Vidwest will bring together videographers and musicians to foster a greater connection between the film and music industries and showcase the independent work of creatives worldwide. In conjunction with Columbia Access Television (CAT), VidWest Festival will offer a two-day docket of concerts, events, and live screenings of music videos in Columbia businesses whose spaces will transform into interactive viewing and listening stations. Guests will “crawl” the venues at their own pace throughout the weekend. Local business support includes Fretboard Coffee, Rose Music Hall, Logboat Brewing Company, Broadway Brewery, Fretboard Coffee, The Social Room, Top Ten Wines, Hitt Records, Artlandish Gallery, Maude Vintage, and Cafe Berlin.
