Punto y Raya Festival

Abstract Art in Motion.


The festival is open to short films built up entirely with abstract (non-representational) imagery. Only Dots & Lines as ends in themselves!

Our activities feature short film and live cinema Calls for Entries; Competition, Retrospective and GuestScreenings (the latter, curated by the most renowned experimental animation festivals); Workshops andConferences open to general audiences, Installations, and PyRformances (live performances).


  • Three international jury Prizes
  • Audience Award


  • All people in the world are eligible to participate in this festival, whatever their age and formation.
  • The films must be made entirely with abstract imagery, avoiding representation.
  • You can use any technique you want: drawing, video composition, cgi, scratch, op·art, stop·motion, camera·less...
  • The Soundtrack cannot feature any words. If you're using a song, this must be completely instrumental or feature non·narrative voices [that is, no lyrics!].
