The 9th edition of the Barcelona Creative Commons Festival brings groundbreaking audiovisual creations to the city.
There is a film scene outside of the commercial circuits, and even on the fringes of what we understand to be the underground. It is a creative current that is committed to change, that sees film as a tool for social transformation, that is involved in the most burning political, social and technological issues of the moment, and that bases its commitment on a belief in absolute and radical freedom. Adopting genres such as short films, documentaries and even fiction, this type of cinema is the focus of the BccN Festival. The Barcelona Creative Commons Festival is a meeting place for directors, producers and audiences who share a common interest in products that are difficult to classify and governed by non-commercial ethics and a transformative aesthetic. The next edition will take place from 5 to 10 June in different venues in Barcelona: MACBA, CCCB, Pumarejo and the Born Centre for Culture and Memory.
The BccN is not just a film festival, but also a place for dialogue and participation and its programme features plenty of conferences and talks. In fact, the opening ceremony at CCCB on Tuesday 5 June at 6pm will be presided over by the collective Artist At Risk. On the same day and at the same venue at 7.30pm there will be the screening of the opening film, Tijeras contra papel, which is a documentary by Gerard Escuer on censorship in the history of Spain. This will be followed by the screening of La Sangre de Cronos and a discussion about torture at the Born Centre for Culture and Memory on 6 June, the screening of Miguel Ángel Blanca's first film Quiero lo eterno, followed by a performance by soundtrack creators Blood Quartet at Pumarejo on 7 June. The screenings and discussions are scheduled to continue at MACBA until Saturday 10 June.
