BIdeOtik – Atendiendo a Otras Narrativas Audiovisuales

BIdeOtik. Using other audio-visual narratives is conceived as a bridge where audiovisual creation and the audience can meet with the following purposes:

– Provide visibility for artistic, cultural, and creative audiovisual creation, as a tool for creation, reflection, and cultural and social transformation.

– To encourage the development of the audiovisual sector by creating a space to showcase local and international audiovisual works.

– To incentivise the dissemination and exhibition of contemporary audiovisual creation.

– To promote the use of new linguistic forms of expression through moving images.

– To consolidate Azkuna Zentroa as the place in Bilbao where the various agents participating in the audiovisual chain of creation can interact.

– There is no element of competition between the selected works, but rather the intention is to promote and disseminate different artistic and experimental practices within the video sector.
