Taking place at the School of Arts of the Portuguese Catholic University, this world renowned festival with unique characteristics welcomes amateurs and professionals of the area of audiovisual art from around the world to take their video, audio and photographic black and white works into competition.
The festival intends to celebrate monochromatic aesthetics as a specific, peculiar and unique kind of artistic expression. This initiative grew from the a need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema. The festival shows not only videos and photos in two colours, but also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
During the festival several activities related to the audiovisual world are carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals.
The jury can nullify the attribution of one or more trophies, but can also distinguish any work with a special award.
