The Festival of Videopoesía MALDITO calls this contest with the purpose of making visible two disciplines that, united as well as separately, are much more secluded and forgotten of what we would like.
MALDITO seeks to vindicate videopoetry as an art that connects people, which transmits feelings and promotes original or different ways of seeing the world, to try to be a tiny contribution that makes any type of visual or poetic art cease to be marginal and damn .
