Almost 50 films submitted to our film competition, produced by children from 9 countries. We have also selected 307 photographs out of the almost 500 entered. The works were produced in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Russia, Spain, Swizterland, Turkey, Ucraine, and the USA.
Specially curated for family audiences by MAD, creators of the festival, these sections explore the intrinsic relationship between sound and imagery, compiling various and curious techniques for the easy creation of abstract films. There is also a section running on a loop curated by the Arxiu Xcèntric for this occasion.
As the result of the workshops carried out during the 2012 Academy Programme at many partnered institutions, or just hours before the show at the CCCB, these LIVE performances made by KIDS explore the creative possibilities of Dots and Lines in various spheres such as Dance, Music and Real-time Audiovisual Art (Live Cinema).
Professionals from different areas (designers, composers, biochemists, mathematicians, visualists, programmers...) explained to us how the Dots and the Lines get together in their respective disciplines. To conclude, together we experimented, carried out actions, and created collective works in various formats applying what we've learned during the presentations.
Playful explorations of the Dot and the Line from different approaches: recycled technologies, architecture and design, photograhy, sports and recreation, sustainibility and environmental studies... Dinamised by our partner groups all the day through.
