In March, they present LA FRONTERA / A RAIA a short film programme to dig in the rich cultural heritage shared between Galicia region (northwest Spain) and Portugal. Never mind the US – Mexico ‘Frontera’, something exciting is happening in the westernmost corner of Europe. Geopolitical borders can’t split a shared way to frame reality.

Winners at Berlinale, Locarno and Rotterdam, Portuguese and Galician filmmakers are achieving international recognition challenging traditional film narratives.

The boundary between Spain and Portugal is supposed to be one of the most – if not the most – fixed and stable borders in the world, with some authors stating that it has a history of almost a thousand years. The fact a geopolitical border says they are different countries, Portuguese and Galicians have a common serene way to understand life.

The programme aims to look at the Influence of established borders between countries in today’s world and the way humans debunk those geographic limits, challenging politics and power.
