Ikusmira Berriak 2018

IKUSMIRA BERRIAK is a programme designed to support audiovisual projects that show innovation and experimentation in both cinematic language and the production medium. It is the result of a partnership between Tabakalera International Centre of Contemporary Culture, Donostia Zinemaldia / San Sebastián Film Festival and the Basque Film Archive Foundation. Ikusmira Berriak is part of the DSS2016's legacy.

Zinema (h)abian

Tabakalera y Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola han sumado fuerzas y, con el apoyo de A Bao A Qu, han puesto en marcha Zinema (h)abian. Ambas instituciones comparten el modelo que propone trabajar el cine y la práctica cinematográfica en las escuelas y han tomado el compromiso de impulsar el proyecto en nuestro territorio.

Third expedition: Post-cosmos

As with the two previous editions, we are using Tabakalera’s summer exhibition—this year focussing on the artist Rosa Barba—as the starting point and we are approaching this year’s seminar as though it were part of an expedition (hence the title), incorporating ideas around travel, adventure, discovery, science, storytelling and fiction.

Cinema and technology

The experimental film and technology lab aims to cast a critical eye on the use of technology (both analogue and digital) applied to image and sound in movement, reflecting and offering creative uses for these materials.

let's roll
"There is something magical and liberating about the idea of ​​“the wealth of potentiality” inherent to movement. In movement nothing is concrete, everything mutates and seems to be in the air; the materialization of reality only comes about when we come...
