Friday 01 de November 2013
Seville is one of the youngest festivals in the world to have a Fipresci Jury: it is a recognition for the festival and for the city given that, of the three Spanish festivals which have a Fipresci award, Seville is the only one in existence for less than fifty years.
The jury is made up of three members of the Federation: Renzo Fegatelli, a veteran Italian critic, has written for Il Mondo, La Fiera Letteraria, Cinema nuovo and Cinema 60, and was a film critic for La Repubblica, visiting festivals around the world for 35 years. He has been a member of the International Juries at Istanbul, Setubal, Valencia, Brussels and Huesca. Tereza Brdocková, a Czech critic, screenwriter and cinema programmer, has been programme director of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. Since 1997 she has her own television programme, and she has been a member of juries at Cannes, Berlin, Venice and Locarno, among others. The Spanish contribution, Covadonga de la Cuesta G. Lahera, the youngest member of the jury, is a journalist, film critic and co-founder of the digital publicationTransit: Cine y otros desvíos which she also co-edits. She collaborates as a columnist with Diario de Levante and with the portal Sensacine, and she has collaborated with specialized magazines such as Blogs & Docs, Contrapicadoand Asiared.
