A colour image of the musician El Niño de Elche wearing a red hoodie and a light grey jacket, resting his crossed arms on a dining table covered with a white plastic tablecloth with a pattern of lemons. The room has a vivid wallpaper with pink, white, green and yellow flowers over a maroon background. Overlaid on the image the words “main programme” in white capital letters.

MAIN PROGRAMME

As the worldwide pandemic highlighted the vulnerability of the creative arts sector as well as its invaluable contribution, this year the main programme explores Art as a Need in 11 feature length documentaries which also challenge stereotypes surrounding society's notion of artists.

 

The Festival, which has consistently celebrated equality, diversity and accessibility as its core values, will apply them even further when bringing this years’ festival to life since all the feature- 

length films in the main programme will include subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing and the opening film will also have an audio
description available.
