A programme that combines pure, unpretentious laughter with shocking, difficult to portray stories - all marked by the seasons. The warm summer season is hyper present in this programme of films that range from family horror to gorgeous delicate dramas. Summer camps, parties on the beach, and a mad Bridget Jones-style New Year’s Eve in Barcelona. Among the programme's highlights is also Lucía Aleñar's Forastera, selected at Semaine de la Critique Cannes 2000 - its visual universe forms the basis for the design of this year's festival images.
