2001

Oulun Musiikkivideofestivaalit ry. organised the Oulu Music Video Festival for the eighth time from 23 to 26 August 2001. The Finnish Music Video Contest screened 154 music videos, and the international jury decided to present the Golden Pumpeli award to an Op:l Bastards animation video. Special screenings offered an international review of digital films and rock nostalgia. The animation Wave Twisters made to DJ QBert's scratch album attracted the biggest audience. Director's Cuts II training concentrated on digital films and animation. The sixth Air Guitar World Championships brought to Oulu not only an international group of contestants but also a rush of foreign journalists. A crowd of over 15,000 people participated in the festival.
