IBAFF opens this year its experimental cinema section -curated by AADK Spain- as well as a new location that decentralizes the Ibn Arabi International Film Festival by incorporating in its tour the town of Blanca.
This section will take place on the 4th, 5th and 6th of March at theatre Teatro Victoria, Centro Negra and Fundación Pedro Cano.
The selection made by Abraham Hurtado is based on the three research lines of AADK Spain: body, spatiality and territory. Thus, shows how film approaches to these concepts, the different paths of entering the experimental cinema, either through its narratives, composition and/or ways of production.
Teatro Victoria. Territory. Friday, March 4th / 21:00 p.m.
Since 2012 AADK Spain has been working on the territory, inviting artists from around the world to explore our surroundings, giving us in return their particular vision. The whole shooting of the two proposals were made in the region, two very different stories which shows a landscape with a strong poetic and narrative potential.

Centro Negra. Body. Saturday, March 5th / 19:30 p.m.
In this section the “body” is represented in a broad spectrum of possibilities. There is the body as a space for experimentation with all it potential -where the movement exceeds the foreseeable and all conventions. But there is also shown its fragility and disappearance, either as an organism that becomes ill, or while navigating in the virtual world – where identity disregards the bodily presence.

BACK DOOR Party
Party with DJ Visionario Excéntrico, visuals and late short film projection.
Back door is a program that inserts the Clubbing Culture into spaces dedicated mostly to contemporary art.
It is clear that this mass culture imagery based on electronic music, design and fashion affects the contemporary artistic creation and the other way around. The intention of this program is to bring art to new audiences and break the boundaries between production for institutional spaces and specialized audience, and the sound and visual repertoire created for these other spaces opened to a wider audience.
Golfa session 23:00 p.m.
For this session there have been selected a series of proposals that expand or move the boundaries of visual language and the conventional exhibition channels, using internet as space for dissemination -free and accessible to anyone interested.
