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:
