Catalan Film Festival 19′

Scotland’s Catalan Film Festival returns bigger than ever before with two weeks of films and events celebrating Catalan culture.

A wave of Mediterranean heat will hit cinema screens throughout the country this winter as CinemaAttic’s Catalan Film Festival returns for its third year. Catalan films, music, food and performance will take over cinemas in Scotland from 22 November to 14 December with over 20 films including Catalan classics, modern favourites, and award-winning short-films.

Some of the highlights for this year include Entre Dos Aguas (Between Two Waters) by Isaki Lacuesta winner of the Golden Shell at the San Sebastian Film Festival, critically acclaimed Els Dies Que Vindran (The Days to Come) by Goya award-winning director Carlos Marques-Marcet or Journey to a Mother’s Room by Celia Rico, with Almodovar-regular Lola Dueñas and Anna Castillo. The festival continues to discover old gems as it will present a special screening of the iconic In Diamond Square film based on the novel by Catalan exiled author Merce Rodoreda in partnership with Filmoteca de Catalunya.

The festival expands to key venues in Scotland as screenings will take place at the Edinburgh Filmhouse and Cameo, Glasgow Film Theatre, CCA Glasgow, DCA Dundee and Eden Court Inverness. The core of the festival will take place between Edinburgh & Glasgow (24 Nov – 8 Dec) but the festival travels this year to Dundee (22-23 Nov) and a follow-up leg in Inverness (11-14 Dec).
