    PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL    THIRD FESTIVAL EDITION

    Punto y Raya returns to Madrid in its third edition, hosted by the Reina Sofía National Museum from November 3rd through 6th 2011. Through our Call for Entries we received 328 films from 42 countries, and we finally made the big jump to FULL HD resolution. David Daniels and Bärbel Neubauer introduced their retrospectives, and we also featured guest sessions curated by the iotaCenter and l'Alternativa Festival.

    As always, we held PyRformances (live AV sets) to close each day, and educational activities in the Academy Programme, including children workshops exploring the Museum's collection.

    GUEST PYRFORMANCES

    Alba G. Corral + Escort Service resignify the pictorial work of Catalonian artist Pérez Porro. Hatori Yumi floods the Auditorio 200 with his minimalism. Things Happen take us for a walk through vintage animated pieces, and the Belgian Optical Machines perform their amazing SHIFT for the first time in Spain.

    OPEN ACADEMY

    Addressed to general audiences, Sergi Valverde introduces us to the fascinating world of Complex Networks and their representation systems.

    ACADEMY FOR STUDENTS

    We continue forming young animators. Laboratoria carries out some optical experiments with White and Black Lights so that children can "animate" abstract films using their own bodies.

    Founded in 1992 and located where the old General Hospital of Madrid used to stand, the building was later developed by the Italian architect Francesco Sabatini.

    The highlights of the Museum's permanent collection include Spanish artists from the twentieth century, specially Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró. Other major collections compile international Surrealist, Cubist and Expressionist artworks.

    This assembly hall located in the Sabatini Building is the perfect example of harmonious co-existence between historical spaces and new uses, in that the building's original structure provides an incomparable setting for a modern, fully-equipped hall.
