The 19th edition of the Festival de Cinema Independent de Barcelona returns this month to showcase a selection of creative and original filmmaking from around the world.
The official selection includes 11 feature films and 19 short films from countries such as Chile, Portugal, Poland or Columbia. The films chosen for the festival challenge tradition and experiment with innovative styles to represent a fresh eye on the world in which we live.
The festival has remained committed to the championing of independent artists and filmmakers for many years and L’Alternativa now features a special sub-category entitled Parallel Sections, which acts as a platform for work by little known and up-and-coming directors and writers.
Highlights of this year’s festival include the Palestinian/Israeli/French co-production 5 Broken Cameras, which won the World Documentary Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival 2012; as well as the British Two Years at Sea which won the FIPRESCI Prize at the renowned Venice Film Festival.
The festival takes place from November 20th-25th. For more information about screenings and tickets, visit the festival's website here.
