ENCLAVE CINEMA IS A WEEKEND WHERE CINEMA, MEMORY, AND TERRITORY ARE THE PROTAGONISTS.
THERE IS A REFLECTION BEHIND DEVELOPED THROUGH PROJECTIONS, TALKS, AND PRESENTATIONS.
Enclave Cinema was born as a necessity increased inside the Enclave Land Art Project for giving more protagonism to the audiovisual channel to transmit a message.
Thanks to a different festival invited in every edition, Enclave Cinema will use its gaze and philosophy to complete the conceptual proposal of the Enclave Land Art residency, the crucial point of the Enclave Project.
The structure of the seminar follows the same as an exhibition project. The invited festival would be the artist, the selected short films would be the artworks to exhibit, and the criteria for the selection follows the concept of Enclave Land Art residency every year. This residency will take place in its third edition from the 22nd of November until the 5th of December in Vall de Gallinera.
Enclave Cinema was born as a participative platform of reflection. To help this, we aim to propose an environment that reaches this goal. The projections will be in the open air within an atmosphere that invites interaction and networking. We counted on the participation of Carlos Olalla, director of Fescimed, and other directors of selected short films to create a dialogue between them and the audience at the end of the projections.
The Enclave Cinema sections were:
'MIRADA PROPIA' (The own gaze) Bienal Internacional Dòna i cinema.
'Mirada propia' was the first section on Friday 24th of September 2021.
It was an immersion in the festival's history through some of the awarded works along its four editions. We want this section to show the festival's identity. Remember, reclaim but overall denounce...these are the tools that use the proposed projects to get the spectator's empathy.
Fescimed is a showcase to demonstrate a commitment to history. In addition, it shows that the most vulnerable people can be protected and their issues denounced through audiovisuals' short proposals.
We selected seven works for this section. They were presented by Deborah Micheletti, Dona i cinema's director.
MIRADA INTERIOR (Inner gaze)
Saturday is focused on the territory.
In the morning the participants discovered some of the emblematic places of Vall de Gallinera and the link with Enclave Land Art 2022's conceptual proposal. The projections in this section complemented the artistic concept of Enclave Land Art: the two sides of the valley conditioned by the sun.
MIRADA ABIERTA (Open gaze)
In this section there is a fusion between art and cinema. We give a space for video-art with the presence of women who are a reference for this discipline. The last day of this festival is the starting point of Enclave Land Art residency in november 2022: After three months of the open call, we will present the seven selected projects which took part of the fourth edition of Enclave Land Art.
The short films were projected at the council house in Beniali due to the weather conditions. The participants could enjoy the bar until the end of the event. The bar was managed by ‘Carretera i manta’.
