    PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL    FIRST FESTIVAL EDITION

    Punto y Raya makes its debut on September 1st & 2nd 2007 at La Casa Encendida in Madrid. The event offers a feast of pure Form, Colour, Motion and Sound. No representation, only Dots & Lines!

    The activities comprise the International Short Film Competition (featuring 54 films), Retrospective sections, educational activities in the Academy Programme, and PyRformances (live AV sets).

    ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME

    SHORT FILM COMPETITION

    Through our first international call for entries we received 94 dot·line films from over 20 countries. 52 were selected to take part in the Official Competition, which was structured into four 52' modules.


      Screening Reels
    GUEST SCREENINGS

    An amazing tour-de-force through over 80 years of the history of cinema, featuring pioneer works in abstract animation from its very beginnings to cgi pieces from the 60’s and more contemporary works created with top notch software.
    Screened in SD, 16mm. & 35 mm.

    GUEST PYRFORMANCES

    SOLU + SupercineXcine delight us with the lifetime story of a peculiar Dot. The Belgian Foton dive us into an overpowering experience in ever-increasing sound and visual dimensions.

    OPEN ACADEMY

    Open to general audiences, in this conference Agustín García Calvo reflects upon the tautological relationship between the Dot and the Line, and its projection into social and political dimensions. José Antonio Millán takes us back to the origins of history to tell us about the creation and evolution of the punctuation marks in the western world.

    ACADEMY FOR STUDENTS

    Open to all ages, Laboratorium propose various activities, which recreate traditional techniques of cameraless filmmaking on 16mm. film and paper strips.
