29th April 2018

Our “blondest” cinemaattico has been selected to take part in one of our favourite festivals. Alberto Valverde is one of the international professionals invited to Barcelona’s D’A Film Festival. Thanks to the PICE programme of Acción Cultural Española, he will assess and help the Incubator projects of Dones Visuals (Visual Women) as well as take part in the professional activities of the festival.

DSC_7700“I’m thrilled to take part in this year’s edition of D’A Film Fest, and with particular regards to know a bit more about Acció Viver projects. At Cinemaattic, we are far from being the most inclusive platform but since two years ago we started a series of Talks and specific actions to promote the work of Spanish female filmmakers in the UK. We are taking gender equality at the heart of our activity and everything around Dones Visuals is being of our interest since its inception”

One of the new features of the eighth edition of the D’A Film Festival Barcelona is the collaboration with Dones Visuals (Visual Women) and its Acció Viver (Incubator Action) initiative.

This programme for guiding and advising audiovisual projects run by women seeks to boost the careers of new female professionals and consolidate the progress made by other women that have already premiered up to two feature films. D’A 2018 will include the second phase of the Acció Viver scheme, consisting of meetings with the industry to seek synergies and funding for selected projects.

43 projects applied for the Acció Viver programme and six of those were chosen to receive guidance and mentoring from such professionals as screenwriter Isa Campo, director Roser Aguilar and producer Valérie Delpierre.

These are the selected projects:

– Reencuentros, by Isabel Gardela

– Adiós a la ciudad, by Mireia Llinàs

– Las niñas, by Pilar Palomero

– Puerto deseado, by Diana Toucedo

– Aún no, by Nuria Polo

– Alma, by Elisabet Prandi

May is full of great news for Cinemaattic with our film proposal traveling to Glasgow, London, Manchester, and Edinburgh. Alberto will also be devouring D’A’s packed programme ahead of our SCAT (Scotland Catalan Film Festival) later this year. Great news for Cinemaattic, which keeps taking part on key international programmes and seeking to expand the work of our small punk collective all over the world
