The HTMlles Festival is an ongoing project of StudioXX, Montreal, Canada's foremost women's digital resource centre, in operation since 1995. The HTMlles Festival, started as an annual event focused on the position of women in cyberspace, has now evolved to become an international biennial project which includes all facets of new media and web art technologies. The Montreal events now stand as a globally-known meeting place for women and feminists working in creative digital mediums and the addition of circulation projects has created an international network for Canadian new media artists.

Following the EXPORT2 tour, the next HTMlles biennial event will be held in
October 2007, in Montreal. As a major international event, the HTMlles
Festival seeks submissions from international artists and academics and
collaborations with international curators, and cultural operators. visit

StudioXX and the HTMlles Festival receive support from numerous governmental
and private bodies including : The Canada Council for the Arts, Le Conseil
des Arts et des Lettres du Quebec, Heritage Canada, The Municipality of
Montreal and The Canadian Embassy in Ankara.
