 and who will give an overview of how her films explore historical memory; and Carlos Casas, together with his incomparable experimental movies. In addition to free morning sessions for primary and secondary schools, a range of topics will be broached in myriad parallel activities, such as the relationship between artificial intelligence and art, the importance of sound in documentary production, the editorial policy of the ARTE channel and the future of independent production. Indeed, as the directors of the gathering, Andrea Guzmán and David Varela, pointed out, “DocumentaMadrid aims to establish a channel enabling dialogue between filmmakers and industry experts, in order to spark a constant and free-flowing debate. This will provide a raison d’être for this idea of creating a community of movie buffs, which we want to be part of the very definition of this festival.”

Likewise, it should be noted that DocumentaMadrid is, for the second year running, hosting the Corte Final Professional Documentary Film Forum, where auteurs will get the opportunity to share their works in progress with experts and consultants. The projects selected for this edition are: In a Whisper [+lire aussi :

The above works will also be competing for a prize that is intended to aid the creators during the final phases of production, as they put the finishing touches to their film, and which will also give a boost to its promotion. Said award will be handed out by a clutch of companies and institutions, including Aracne DC, DRAX audio, NUMAX, DOCMA, Festhome and 36 caracteres.
