Punto y Raya fosters Audiovisual Arts in their purest state: Form, Colour, Motion and Sound. No representation! This renders it Universal and Timeless. Its mission is 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.
The festival takes place every two years in major venues in contemporary creation and new technologies. Our first editions were carried out in Spain (2007-2012) at venues like the Reina Sofía National Museum in Madrid and Center for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona. So relevant became the event, that since 2014 we’ve been invited to co-produce it in a different country each time; so far: Iceland (Harpa, Reykjavík), Germany (ZKM, Karlsruhe) and Poland (CeTA & Four Dome Pavilion, Wroclaw).
With seven installments under its belt, the most comprehensive Online Catalogue and Resource Centre in the genre, the broadest and most diverse creative community, and a promotion platform comprising over 45 cities, Punto y Raya has established itself as the world benchmark for ABSTRACT ART IN MOTION.
The festival is run by the Barcelona-based non-profit association MAD (Moviment d'Alliberament Digital).
