The Madrid Festival of Contemporary Audio-Visual Arts (MADATAC – Muestra Abierta de Arte Audiovisual Contemporáneo), aims to serve as a lighthouse for video and visual artists; spotlighting work which challenges the conventional cinematic narrative.

With an open and inclusive approach, MADATAC places particular value on experimentation, innovation and risk-taking. Prizes are awarded to the best works from those presented to competition and selected for the festival by the TV program Transfera. Transfera is a weekly programme broadcast from Madrid showcasing digital and video art.

During the festival, there are daily showings of video creations, open discussions with video artists, lectures, round-table debates, audio-visual performances and forums.

The Official International Selection comprises a total of 90 video creations from 21 different countries. The Ibero-American Selection (35 works) is shown at the Instituto Cervantes in Madrid, and the Rest of the World Selection (55 works) is shown at the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas. At the end of each screening session there is a forum with the artists.
