SINESTESIA releases 2017 videopoetry line-up

The annual SINESTESIA videopoetry screening in Barcelona is scheduled for next Friday, May 19. Here’s a quick-and-dirty translation of their post announcing this year’s selection:

As we announced a few days ago, the latest edition of Barcelona’s SINESTESIA International Videopoetry Show will be held on May 19 at the Bonne Centre de Cultura de Dones Francesca Bonnemaison. This year as always, thanks for their cooperation to the videopoets and other individuals and entities interested in this discipline, above all for announcing the call in videopoetry-related websites. We have received more than 180 works from 66 artists from all continents, so we must say THANK YOU to everyone for your support.

Even though this is the third year that SINESTESIA has been held, it is still a growing project and we do not have enough time to be able to screen all the received videopoems, although we would love to. We have also been surprised by the high quality of the work in general, which has made the selection process very difficult. So after watching over and over, we have selected these 24 works for SINESTESIA 2017.
