Catalan Film Festival

Hey all,

here we go!

Once again CinemaAttic is keen to bring pioneer initiatives as an alternative source of entertainment in UK cities like Edinburgh to which we hope you can respond favourably.

This time we are bringing up the best of contemporary Catalan cinema because, merely, we believe the platforms responsible for it (Catalan Academy of cinema, TV3, distribution companies such as Marvin&Wayne, filmmaking schools such as ESCAC…) are doing things in simple and wise fashion, facilitating the legion possibilities of their new (and of course the established) filmmakers to flourish, as well as making possible the organization of festivals like the one we are about to start.

We’ll be brief now, letting the events we have prepared speak for themselves. This is a rare opportunity to approach the most significant proposals of a very vibrant culture.

– Festival Opening Day next Thursday 29th November:

Listening to Judge Garzón (2011) -Best Spanish Documentary 2012- by Isabel Coixet at Summerhall Edinburgh.

An international case, an unmissable document that will be opened up by an introduction of Edinburgh-based author Daniel Gray (author of Homage to Caledonian)

– Festival day II on Friday 30th November:

Bicycle, spoon, apple (2010) by Carles Bosch at Summerhall Edinburgh.

A trully moving documentary on Alzheimer’s disease, portraying the struggle of former mayor of Barcelona Pasqual Maragall.
Not to be missed or forgotten.

Festival day III on Saturday 1st December:
