Quick reminder for those lazy souls living in Madrid! ccMAD will open its doors tomorrow for an intense 4-day Creative Commons Film Festival in the Spanish capital. A first for the city (a bit behind Barcelona as the Catalonian city organised last year their own and already 2nd edition of the CC festival, the BccN).
Much like the BccN, ccMAD proposes a list of talks, films and hours-long discussions around the potential Internet offers to film creators… who decide to use the CC licenses of course. The screenings and talks will take place in 2 places: La Casa Encendida & MediaLab-Prado.
The first will offer (with live streaming btw!) during the weekend the premiere of several films and a talk with Dutch director Bregtje van der Haak (behind California Dreaming documentary) and Media Woman of the Year 2006. Other films include Maud & Leo by Jonny von Wallstram or our big favorite “An Island” by French director Vincent Moon.
But first … the festival presentaion @ Media-Lab Prado tomorrow! With a first talk by Guillermo Zapata, Pieter de Vos, Alberto Tognazzi and Stephane Grueso followed by the screening of a few shorts and on Friday more screenings, & more talks.
The festival is a copy of the BccN as we said before with a big objective: create a world network of CC festivals, so if you want to take the festival to your town just like in Madrid… you may want to read their helpguide. Oh and if you’re around Madrid… just visit … it’s free. More info this way.
