introduction


From May 22 to 25, 2013 the School of Arts from the Portuguese Catholic University - Porto opens its doors to monochromatic aesthetics. The 10th Black & White Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.

With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.

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 in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.
