IFOV is a resource for those interested the presentation and discussion of and around experimental film and video. Beginning in 2017, the site is titled in dedication to art historian A.L. Rees. Subsequently, the site focuses on those influenced by the teaching and writing of Rees, having either been taught by him on Time Based Media at KIAD, Maidstone, and/or later in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art, London. Al was notoriously welcoming, friendly and generous, and it is in this vein that IFOV attempts to pool the resources of various artists and makers, and continue the research, presentation and discussion of artist and makers experimenting with film and video.
