CINEMAATTIC EVENTS ALL OVER THE UK
Cinemaattic films take all over the UK in May with special events happening in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, and London
We never thought our mad dream would get this far, but here we are, looking at our calendar for May and finding special retrospectives, screenings of Spanish classics in 35mm, a special programme promoting Spanish women directors, panel debates, talks, workshops… What an exciting month ahead! Cinemaattic takes independent Spanish films all over the UK
Let’s do it in chronological order:
MUJERES | MANCHESTER | Spanish Women Filmmakers at Instituto Cervantes Manchester + Panel Debate. In May 10th we take our programme MUJERES to Instituto Cervantes Manchester. For the first time, the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester will hold one of Cinemaattic’s projects with the Focus on ‘Mujeres’. F-rated programme to celebrate a new wave of female filmmakers coming from Spain, that will include the screening of 5 short films -amongst them the Goya-winner Los Desheredados by Laura Ferres- followed by a panel discussion. Estefania Cortes, director of Miss Wamba will join us to discuss the challenges in making one of the most award winning Spanish shorts films this year.
