ABOUT PYR

Created and produced by the Barcelona-based association MAD (Moviment d'Alliberament Digital), PUNTO y RAYA fosters the preservation, production and promotion of ABSTRACT ART IN MOTION in all its practices: Film, Animation, Live Cinema, Performance, Installation, Interactivity, Net & Software Art.

Born in 2007 with the launch of the first PUNTO y RAYA FESTIVAL in Madrid, the event has seven editions under its belt and presence in over 50 cities around the globe, compiling the most comprehensive catalogue, aglutinating the broadest community, and consolidating itself as the worldwide benchmark in the genre.

PyR Structure
Its Mission is structured around three main axes:
PyR Festival
Punto y Raya Festival

This is the PyR Highlight event, biannually bringing together its community in a different city each time. The festival celebrates the latest achievements in the genre, and recovers & contextualises great classics. It invites the most renowned experimenters to resignify the genre's possibilities and applications; it consolidates its community and sensitises new audiences; it establishes international collaborations for education, production and distribution, and in the process, it consolidates PyR as the genre's benchmark.
