NEW CINEPHILES online. Cervantes Institute
"The other Spanish cinema" was the name given to that generation that began in the cinema with the 21st century, filmmakers who sought to express themselves with new paradigms that benefited from the freedom of the digital revolution.
Throughout these twenty years, these filmmakers have created a small niche, where new narrative models are experimented with. Undoubtedly, this cinema has been strongly defended by festivals, resisting even in places where to (in)form and connect with contemporary cinema-lovers.
This program by the Cervantes Institute, co-organized with the Festival, is a proposal to give visibility to this new side of cinema through an online programme made up of four films from the past editions of the Festival.
-November 6: Niñato (Adrian Orr, 2017)
-November 13: Ver a una mujer (Monica Rovira, 2017)
-November 20: A estación violenta (Anxos Fazans, 2018)
-November 27: Idrissa, Chronicle of an Ordinary Death (Xavier Artigas and Xapo Ortega, 2019)
This program will be available with subtitles in English, French, Portuguese (Brazilian), Italian, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, Czech, Chinese and Spanish.
All titles will be available on the Cervantes Institute's Vimeo channel for 48 hours starting at 8pm. [GMT+1] on the indicated dates.
