Best of Fests
Innovative cinema and intimate insights: The BEST OF FESTS series brings together films that have already been screened at other important festivals and celebrated or awarded prizes there.
Homage Heidi Specogna
The gaze into the foreign life, the curiosity for the other perspective run through the cinematic work of the multiple award-winning Swiss filmmaker Heidi Specogna. The homage presents six films from four decades of her artistic work.
The six films in the retrospective are testimonies to a trauma that has become a defining part of Spanish identity: the long years of dictatorship under Francisco Franco. The series is made possible with the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
