Cut Here IV
A selection of videos from Spain’s independent music scene, curated by Nacho R. Piedra. The magic of music videos lies in the interplay between sound and image. Not just a song, not just a film but more than that, the sum of the parts.

Our venue partner The Snooty Fox pub will screen Cut Here IV on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th from 5pm / 7pm and Sunday the 8th from 7pm / 9pm.

FF>> Fresh Fashion From Spain, curated by Noelia Terrón-Laya
Spanish design has a distinctive flair that is often difficult to define: is it the use of colour? The choice of shapes? The taste for prints? Its rich cultural heritage? Or perhaps its craftsmanship tradition?

As every year, we put words aside and let images speak for themselves. Fresh Fashion from Spain proposes an overview of Spain’s young and cutting edge design in a selection of videos curated by Noelia Terrón-Laya.

On this occasion we have partnered with Madrid Fashion Film Festival, a showcase of the best audio visual work made for the fashion industry, now on its second year.

‘THE WORD IS POET’, curated by Silvia Terrón
This documentary by Asturias-born poet and film producer Sofía Castañón proposes looking at literature through a gender lens. 21 Spanish poets born between 1974 and 1990 give their own perspective about literary creation, its dissemination, and the reactions by literary critics and the public in general. Does being a man or a woman play a role in the process?

Roundtable discussion with Sofía Castañón and Sara Torres. Curated by Silvia Terrón.
