Parachute Light Zéro is a natural continuation of festivals held in Argentina between 2000 and 2007: especially, the events of Festival Internacional de Arte Digital which aimed to create an interaction space between novices, artists and professionals of digital art, design, video, photography, music. And also any other event oriented toward experimental practice (performances, installations, etc.) having a link with the audiovisual, such as multimedia production, Vj, Dj, or audiovisual creation of any kind.

The Festival Internacional de Arte Digital was the first festival of this kind in Argentina, and the first real space distribution of independent Argentinean artists’ works working with digitization of sound and image through various media.
