PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL seeks to recapture the spirit of Cinéma Pure and Absolute Film formulated by the European avant-garde in the 1920s, consolidating this unique artform laying at the intersection between Fine Arts and Media.
Consolidated since 2007 as the world event for Abstract Art in Motion, the festival invites artists to explore audiovisual arts in their purest state: Form, Colour, Motion and Sound. No representation!
The event takes place every two years in a different country, co-produced and hosted by major art centres and museums across Europe, including Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid), CCCB Centre for Contemporary Culture (Barcelona), HARPA Concert Hall (Reykjavík), ZKM (Karlsruhe), CeTA Audiovisual Technology Center (Wroclaw), and Austrian FilmMuseum (Vienna), amongst others.
The programme features:
- International Short Film Competition
- National Panoramas
- Guest Screenings & Retrospectives
- PyRformances (live audiovisual performances)
- Academy Programme (Masterclasses, Round Tables, Workshops...)
- Junior Programme (for family audiences)
