The 2nd edition of the Cinemística film festival is included in the official UNESCO program that declared 2015 the International Year of Light . Cinemística® takes part in the international program as well as in the spanish program. Indeed, on December the 20th 2013 the United Nations (UN) in its 68th Annual Meeting proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies. The International Year of Light aims to raise global awareness on the importance of light and its associated technologies in key areas of our contemporary world such as energy, education, health, communication, etc.

International Year of Light 2015It is obvious that cinematography benefits and is in fact immersed in the physical and intellectual mystery that is light, but surprisingly Cinemística is the only film festival internationally to join the International Year of Light proclaimed by the UNESCO. Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky saw cinema as “the art of sculpting in time”, to which we might easily add it is also “the art of sculpting in light”. Perhaps these are equivalent terms: light and time go hand in hand, or are part of something substantial, subjacent, identical or immanent…

In the same way that 2014 edition, the Festival programme will be based in 14 seminars, all the weekends between spring equinox and summer solstice, that includes: shorts films, documentaries and/or feature films unpublished in Granada. Films projections with mystic, philosophic, religious, anthropologic and/or poetic nature, followed by a forum between the assistants. In the sessions can be included, like a retrospective, feature films from differents periods of history of cinema, from renowned directors.

La Corrala de Santiago (UGR, Historical Monument) is the festival neuralgic centre, which is located in Santiago street, 5, Granada (Realejo district). All projections will be in original version with Spanish subtitles. The discussions will be oversee by experts, critics and specialists in the different thematics.
