Inaugural Québec film festival in Barcelona
From May 21-23, the Catalan capital will be hosting a showcase for talented young Québec filmmakers during the inaugural version of Mostra de Cinema de Québec de Barcelona, a new contemporary Québec cinema festival. A selection of feature-length and short films will be shown at two key venues in the city, Verdi Park Cinema and the French Institute of Barcelona (IFB).
Danny Lennon, programmer of the Prends Ça Court short film festival, and filmmaker Vincent Morisset will be among the guests of honour.
Stemming from a collaboration between SODEC (Québec’s cultural development agency), Mecal Fest BCN and Québec Government Office in Barcelona, the initiative is designed to forge closer ties between the film industries in Québec and the Iberian Peninsula. Building on the success of Cinéma du Québec à Paris, which has also been held in Cannes, Nîmes and Liège (Belgium), satellite events may also be scheduled elsewhere in Spain.
