introduction


46 works in competition, from 13 countries
Black & White Festival returns to the Portuguese Catholic University - Porto

From May 11th to 14th, the School of Arts from the Portuguese Catholic University - Porto opens its doors to monochromatic aesthetics. The eighth Black & White Audiovisual Festival, that receives for competition only video, audio and photography in black and white, shows 46 works: 30 videos, 8 photographic sequences and 8 audio works, from 13 countries such as: Germany, Georgia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Norway, United Kingdom, Portugal and Spain.

With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to educate viewers to the specificity of black and white, that tends to be regarded as uninteresting. But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white. Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.
