Dart Festival 2022
By Charlotte Stace
Dart is the meeting point between cinema and art in Spain. It is the first documentary film festival dedicated to contemporary art whose main objective is to intertwine culture and knowledge with the general public. It does so through documentaries on photography, art curatorship, painting, performance, architecture, artistic movements and, in general, on contemporary art, paying special attention to artists, their creative processes and the stories behind their work.
The approaches are very diverse: biopics, visual arts projects produced for a specific place or time, exhibitions or relevant events in the history of contemporary art, from the avant-garde hatching of the early 20th century to the present day. At the same time, the programme includes educational and informative activities, such as talks, visits to art galleries, exhibitions, Q&A and debates.
This year’s highlights include Lucien Freud: A Self-Portrait, The Women of The Bauhaus, and Art Lovers Unite! (With Vivien Westwood).
