To that end, a singular program of video and film works it’s presented, along a space for discussion enriched by distinguished artists and researchers that propose, both to specialists and the general public, a framework of exchange that improves the experience of the encounter with the work of art.
The BIM emerges as an initiative of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), this fact defines its identity founded on solid thinking and critical attitude. The deliberation framework that constitute the encounters with international artists, conferences, round-table meetings and workshops, it’s what makes the BIM so much more than just a well-nourished program of video and film works.
The call is open to single channel works, in both video and film, of author profile, that stand away from the rules established by the entertainment industry, and that are the result of authentic innovative and aesthetic and conceptual searches.
