OFFF – Year Zero

I will be attending the OFFF event in Barcelona next week! I cannot wait to be there!
This will be my first time at this event, but I was hoping to make it since a long time.

About OFFF:

OFFF is an entity in continuous transformation, alive and evolutionary. More than a decade ago, it was born as a post-digital culture festival; a meeting place to host contemporary creation through an in depth programme of conferences, workshops and performances by the most relevant artists of our time.

These days, OFFF keeps being a reference event throughout the world. A festival hosted in Barcelona, New York, Lisbon and Paris which has featured renowned artists such as Joshua Davis, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda, Neville Brody, Kyle Cooper, The Mill, Digital Kitchen, Ben Fry & Casey Reas, Golan Levin, Chris Milk, Rob Chiu, Julien Vallée, Paula Scher, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, Dvein, Erik Natzke, Vincent Moon, Ze Frank, Alex Trochut, among others…The festival where a new generation of artists has originated and developed. All of them started attending OFFF as spectators. Today, they take up its main stage.

The OFFF phenomenon has also produced the creation of an extensive international network of artists, developers, theorists and even more importantly, people who love art in all its multiple expressions: students, fans, professionals and the curious. People who want to show what they do, to discover what others do and, above all to share their knowledge and their desires to inspire and to be inspired.

Additionally, the OFFF network includes a teaching centre, OFFF Atelier, a continuous presence in the web 2.0 and a permanent group of artists, organizers and producers ready to host OFFF events wherever they are in demand.

More than a decade ago, OFFF was born as a festival. Today, OFFF is a way of understanding art. A way of life. Evolving and transforming.

The festival is divided into seven major sections: Roots, Openroom, Workshops, Showplace, Mercadillo, Cinexin & Chillax.

ROOTS – OFFF’s heart: Artists in the most contemporary sense of the word –designers, inventors, moviemakers, illustrators, developers-, capable of turning a conference into a creative event as inspired as inspiring.
OPENROOM – The rising talents scene: New artists are given the chance to make a name for themselves in front of their natural audience.
WORKSHOPS – The interactive learning: Engage attendees in a process of interactive learning.
SHOWPLACE – The exhibition area: A space where you can enjoy interactive installations, generative art pieces, immersive environments of sound, video and graphic work.
CINEXIN – The screening room: A cosy place where you can enjoy some of the best productions of the season and even contrast opinions with the rest of the attendees.
