The 8th edition of the Barcelona Creative Commons Film Festival will take place from 7 to 11 June.
‘Sharing is caring’ is the motto of the BccN, Barcelona Creative Commons Film Festival, which is set to celebrate its 8th edition at Barcelona’s Macba contemporary art museum, Zumbeig Cinema and Àgora Juan Andrés from 7 to 11 June. The focus of the festival is on audio-visual works created under a Creative Commons licence and it will feature screenings of the best works presented, together with workshops, debates and dialogues that aim to defend free culture and work as a critical and transformational tool.
A large part of the program consists of works that seek to raise awareness of the struggles and aspirations of communities that resist being trampled by global inertia and that make values such as sharing and cooperation the backbone their existence. In this regard, Jirau e Santo Antônio: relatos de uma guerra amazônica lends its voice to the people of the Amazon in their struggle for water, while La revolta de les escales depicts the resistance of the workers when the Spanish telecom Telefónica uses outsourcing to impose increasingly worse conditions on its workers. There will also be a debate on new communities in struggle featuring the collectives Metromuster, Marea Blava, Sindicat de Barri, Sindicat de Llogaters, Sindicat de Músics and #NoCallarem. According to the organisers, Panorama180: "Thinking makes us free. Trying to understand how society works and what is imposed on us is essential for building fairer societies in which people are at the centre".
Included in the festival’s extensive programme are La cifra negra, which highlights human rights abuses in contemporary Spain, La tierra tiembla on contemporary Spanish politics, Idrissa: fronteres de la quotidianitat, an audiovisual performance that takes us to the darkest corners of Europe and Africa, and Untitled n2, a performance that tackles the question of memory.
Places are free of charge and are given on a first come first served basis. Some require preregistration. You’ll find more information at the BccN website.
