Every Sunday at 1pm, we wrap up the week together with #CinemaAtticVermouth / Un Vermut con CinemaAttic, a relaxed live conversation with some of the directors on CinemaAttic’s Facebook channel.

We love the programme this week because is full of secrets and we gathered some of our favorite Spanish directors (Asier Altuna, Virginia Garcia del Pino, Pedro Collantes, Xavier Marrades, Nely Reguera or Jaione Camborda) all in the same programme. Silent heroes that you might not know, but we invite you to check, discover and remember. Thrilled to have Cucli by Xavier Marrades, one of our most beloved short films of the last decade with an unusual tenderness and emotional depth. Representing the ‘Novo Cinema Galego’ we have Jaione Camborda’s Rapa Das Bestas, yet we also have pioneers of what some have coined ‘Catalan New Wave’ with Nely Reguera’s Pablo.
