The world of contemporary art through the eyes of cinema.

DART FESTIVAL

DART is the meeting point between cinema and arts, the first international documentary film festival ever held in Spain with a specific focus on arts aiming to spread contemporary art culture and knowledge among the public at large. For this we offer a selection of documentaries revealing the lives of the artists, their processes of creation, the research and stories behind their work.

DART’s founding values define the festival as a supporter of documentaries focused on stories of visual artists, movements and collectives and their creative processes, also as a promoter of new ways to experience and explore these proposals through the eyes of cinema. The program wants to supply crucial reflections on creativity and inspiration around Contemporary Art.

DART’S GOALS ARE:

IconaN1-50x50-01

Offer a previously-unexplored genre by the Barcelona-based film festivals to focus our attention towards art.

IconaN2-50x50-01

Promote the work of filmmakers and support national and international documentary industry to stimulate research in this artistic field by professionals in the sector.

IconaN3-50x50-01

Generate new ways to experience and explore art through cinema offering a different framework to approach and learn such proposals more than of galleries, museums, schools and through books and other media.

IconaN4-50x50-01

Explore the aesthetic and the role intellectual that art has in the society, as well as it unequivocally will of show it as a phenomenon alive and in constant evolution.
