Founded in Logroño in 2012, FIVER is the most important platform of support, production, training, archiving and dissemination of audiovisual dance and new technologies in Spain. This year it is celebrating its 7th edition in Naves Matadero, where all the works that have been shortlisted for the FIVER Awards and a selection of invited works can be seen.
On Saturday 5 October there will be a double session with projections of the shortlisted works, selected from among more than 500 pieces received from all over the world. Attendees will be given the opportunity to vote for the Audience Award.
On Sunday 6, the prize-winning works will be exhibited along with a selection of international short films and invited films, including the latest work by Mexican video artist Octavio Iturbe, a FIVER 2020 artist.
In collaboration with BAC Madrid #0, FIVER will generate activities throughout the month of September such as the Cunningham 100 Years Exhibition, talks, Tejido Madrid meetings, #Fiverlabs creation laboratories, showcases and pitchings in various venues in Madrid. The closing ceremony of the seventh edition of FIVER Madrid will take place on 6 October in the Sala Plató of the Cineteca Madrid Film Archive.
