FESTIVAL ECRÃ is an Experimental Art and Cinema event that, through experiences that question the notion and production of the moving image, seeks to stimulate audiovisual culture. By showing Films, Games, Installations, Interactive Arts, Performances and Videoarts, ECRÃ encourages new formats for the production and exhibition of these works.

This project arose in 2016 from the desire to question the film industry and its “primordial elements” and to give space for filmmakers and artists to experiment freely in audiovisual production and thinking.

Over the years we have works from all parts of the world and presence of names like James Benning, Luis Grané, Ken Jacobs, Paula Gaitán, Julio Bressane, Luiz Rosemberg Filho, Seyeong Yoon, Gastón Solnicki, Geraldo Sarno, among others veterenas and new creators.

    Please read the 41-page Rules and Terms downloadable PDF file that one can acquire by copying and pasting a link on this page. I was initially disappointed that my selected video was online only. But I was later told that we were informed that all art videos “will be displayed in the Online Step” on page 29 of this PDF. Although I don’t generally read 41 pages of Rules and Terms PDFs, this is important information.

    We would like to thank you for your feedback, it’s always important for us to understand how well our information is coming across.

    However we remind you that the information about the online vs in person parts of the Festival and all the categories was in the Rules and Terms of the event, that was available to read before you submitted your work, and we always recommend that all applicants to read it. After our comunication via e-mail about not wanting your work online we replied to you with all the information and places where this option was shown, and we even added more places after that.

    We are sorry that you had a bad experience with us, we tried to make everything as clear as possible. We will keep an eye on our notice to avoid any misunderstandings.
