From March 9th-13th, football documentary film festival, Offside Fest, will take place in the Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm and Cinema Maldà. The aim of the festival is to explore football not only as a sport, but also as a social and cultural phenomenon with films that reveal some of the human stories behind one of the world’s favourite sports. One documentary, Gascoigne (2015), tells of the life of troubled football player Paul Gascoigne in a film that delves into the star’s inner psyche. For a more light-hearted showing, The Art of Football (2009), follows veteran sketch-actors John Cleese and Tom Konkle as they take a comic look at the A-Z of football.
