By processing the 3rd Upgrade! International meeting theme "Chain Reaction", the screening program has a special focus on the production modes of the Upgrade! network. Curators and artists from all over the network were invited to introduce topics and forms of production, most predominantly, animation. Subsequently, the selected works demonstrate a variety of interests, fields of research, methodologies, diverse ideologies and politics that the Upgrade! network inhabits. Additionally, two guest curators, Gabi Ngcobo from Cape Town and Negar Tahsili from Tehran contributed to the screening program with the intent to expand the geographic boundaries of the network.

The program consists of 6 sessions: Stories, Places, Traces, Reactions, Actions, and Protocols. Each session brings together similar experiences and parallel stories, critical and significant cases as well as mundane realities of life.
