MALDITO FESTIVAL de Videopoesía is an international video-poetic contest that has been held in Albacete (Spain) since 2017.

MALDITO FESTIVAL launch this Videopoetry contest with the purpose to show two disciplines that, either individually or collectively, are much more isolated and forgotten as we would like. According to our experience, these disciplines are considered marginal and minor in the extent of the great European capitals, moreover, in the humble towns within regional borders where its dissemination is nonexistent.

MALDITO FESTIVAL seeks to vindicate videopoetry as an art that connects people, transmits feelings and stimulates different ways to see the world. It is also a tiny contribution of enormous people to empower visual art, stopping it from being marginal and damned*.

*The Spanish word for «damned» is MALDITO

The festival is organized by non-profit Association Cultural Maldito; formed by a small team of professionals from the film industry, poetry and culture in general.

Maldito Crew, as lovers of poetry, image and the expressive possibilities of its symbiosis, we pick up the baton and propose to continue the line of action, encouraging their approach to the public.
