The world of contemporary art through the eyes of cinema.

Dart Festival –

Dart is the meeting point between cinema and art in Spain. It is the first documentary film festival dedicated to contemporary art born with the aim of intertwining culture and knowledge with the general public. To this end, it offers a selection of documentaries on the lives of artists, the creative processes, the research and the stories behind their works.

Dart showcases works by directors that document and tell the stories of artists, movements and collectives and their creative processes, while fostering appreciation and understanding of art through the eyes of the cinema. The festival program aims to provide crucial reflections on creativity and inspiration around contemporary art.
