).

D'A Barcelona will be topped off by a raft of other activities, such as the Professional Conferences, which will take an in-depth look at the labs and hubs that operate within festivals, and which will provide useful tools for project development, helping to strengthen, finance and internationalise film productions. In addition, there will be two workshops organised in conjunction with the ECAM (Film and Audiovisual School of the Community of Madrid), devoted to directing and sound. This particular institution will also hand out the OpenECAM Prize, which allows the winning director to use its facilities and technical equipment for the production or post-production of his or her next movie, thus giving a fresh new injection to the Un Impulso Colectivo (lit. “A Collective Push”) section. Another accolade handed out in this section is the Movistar+ Award, which comprises the acquisition of the broadcasting rights for a total of €12,000. What’s more, the Talents Award for the best film in the aforementioned section is now endowed with €10,000, which will be bestowed upon its distributor.

, the third movie by Carlos Marqués-Marcet, which – after picking up the Golden Biznaga at the most recent Málaga Film Festival – will bring the ninth Barcelona Arthouse Film Festival to a close in ten days’ time, after it has once again served as a platform for discovery for the most restless and discerning of audiences, allowing them to sample a fine array of unorthodox filmmakers who steer well clear of clichés.
