GUIAR is the first festival created in Pernambuco with audiovisual online shows. The event will take place during five days and will feature international videodance films in competitive and non-competitive shows , as well as workshops, and live and online performance presentations.

The event was created from the annoyance of André Aguiar with the lack of public access to dance performances. "The challenge of inspiring people through the dance is greater because it is an ephemeral and face-to-face language. But through the audiovisual, this cultural expression can be appreciated at any time by people in different parts of the world, thanks to digital technologies and the internet", comments Aguiar.

The use of the Internet is also a key point for the event decentralization and to guarantee popular participation. On one of the days of the Festival, the audience will choose the film that will be screened, through voting by social networks. To make the event even more accessible, there will also be audiodescription, translators and subtitles in Portuguese and English.
