ViSiONA is a cultural project organised by Diputación de Huesca. Its main objective is to convey artistic creation and its reflections on contemporary image, by adapting contents and activities to approach the largest audience possible.
In our fifth edition, we are pleased to be in Family Film Project sessions in Porto with a selection of a few works already screened in past editions of ViSiONA. We have been collaborating with Family Film Project since 2012, exchanging views and enriching our ways of addressing certain issues around family, domestic image and autobiography among others.
ViSiONA is directed by Pedro Vicente, organised and coordinated by Diputación de Huesca, the audiovisual sessions are curated by Elena Zapata.
