RIZOMA is a unique international festival that combines film, art, music, conferences and community engagement to build each edition around a central concept.

Like the rhizome itself, RIZOMA is interconnected, interdependent and non-hierarchical. RIZOMA values that the different branches of culture feed and inspire each other. We believe in the horizontality of a rhizome so it is important to bring together emerging and established artists so that some feed off each other and of course the public as a part of the festival.

Known for having brought to Madrid for the first time creators of the stature of David Lynch, John Waters and Debbie Harry. RIZOMA also stands out for its efforts to bring to light the work of new Spanish artists. To this end, it has created the RIZOMA [...]
