KIMUAK means ‘sprout’ in Basque.
Every spring, Basque leader distribution platform KIMUAK selects the best from Basque short film scene to create an annual DVD with the the most talented, original and qualified proposals produced within Basque Country. With the support of the Basque Government’s Department of Culture and the Basque Film Archive, the selection criteria bespeaks of an industry that looks after its cinema which is ultimately reflected on the screen.
We are talking about authors of the like of Borja Cobeaga, Isabel Herguera, Asier Altuna, Telmo Esnal o Gregorio Muro -more than 80 awards between them all including GOYA and Academy Awards.
Thanks to our collaboration in recent years both with KIMUAK and Basque Filmoteque, we have gathered the new buds that have germinated in 2011 and 2012 as to take them to Scotland. A unique overwiew of what is happening in one of the most prolific and well-cared cinema in Spain these days.
And rather than concentrating on Spain as a whole, whether that is possible or not at all, why not opening up a window to diversity by looking at peripheral cinemas ?
Can peripheral be actually superlative? Indeed it can, come and see.
All the films will be screened with English subtitles. The only opportunity to approach cutting-edge Spanish cinema outside the generic channels of cinema industry.
