The BccN Barcelona Creative Commons Film Festival is the world’s first festival for works released under Creative Commons licenses, which allow greater flexibility, boost online film distribution, and create links between filmmakers and their audiences.
The fifth BccN will be held from 6 to 8 June at MACBA. Documentaries, shorts and feature films from around the world make up the programme of this year's festival, which puts the spotlight on innovative approaches to film exhibition, and includes related activities such as a round table and a live-cinema session.
BccN is also a meeting point and an opportunity for reflection and for pooling knowledge and experience. Filmmakers will explain their projects to audiences, who will have the opportunity to participate in the work physically and collectively, and continue the process online.
Under the slogan ‘copy the festival’, the 2014 BccN at MACBA is the first stop on a tour that will take the festival around the globe in the form of ‘copies’ throughout the year.
Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
