The very last event of this season!!
On Monday the 18th we team up with Craigmillar Library and their Spanish Week Festival to bring Edinburgh CinemaAttic@s a chance to watch the last of KIMUAK shorts collection from the 20 años retrospective. We screened this in Glasgow but due to the screening of AMAMA in Edinburgh this block was never screened.
We gather contemporary shorts – some are Oscar nominated – from Basque Country. Films that we love and were part of KIMUAK programmes in recent years.
SHORT MATTERS – Back in the nineties using the experience of UniFrance and the New Zealand Film Commission the Basque Government decided to incorporate into their cultural agenda the production and distribution of short films as a core area of support and interest. As a result, the public agency Kimuak (‘Sprout’ in Basque) became the major driving force behind a whole new wave of Basque filmmakers.
Thanks to the ongoing collaboration between CinemaAttic and KIMUAK, as well as Basque Film Archive and Etxepare Basque Institute – Scotland and Basque Country have been connected every year since 2011. Now, to mark the 20th Anniversary of KIMUAK, a constellation of some of the most prominent Basque filmmakers visited Scotland.
