CONCEPT

+RAIN Film Festival opens an international call for submissions of films that use AI models in their creative processes and that explore their narrative and technological capabilities. In its second edition, the +RAIN Film Festival invites directors to present and debate their works at public screenings. An international jury selects the most innovative films to be shown at Sónar+D.

+RAIN Film Festival is the first European festival of films generated with artificial intelligence (AI). +RAIN explores contemporary film storytelling with AI-based technologies and their aesthetic, ethical, and political possibilities and implications. The event invites discovery, experimentation, and detailed reflection on the most relevant aspects of authorial creation and the industrial dynamics in the cinematographic field generated by this transformative technology.

+RAIN is interested in using creative methodologies with AI models at the service of storytelling. Beyond the visual dimension, this technology poses challenges in explaining stories and stresses concepts such as creativity and imagination.

DATES
