Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Just in case the Mediterranean island of Ibiza wasn’t appealing enough already, for the last four years it has been hosting its own festival of international, independent film, Ibizacinefest, headed up by Xavi Herrero. This year’s iteration kicks off on Friday 31 January, and it is due to unspool until 9 February. Between those two dates, audiences will be able to dive headfirst into its rich selection of titles that focus on and showcase independence, auteur filmmaking at its finest, and sheer originality. In addition to this, attendees can enjoy workshops, conferences and industry meetings, like the one that will take place on Saturday 8 February with Catalan producer and European Film Academy member Ángela Bosch, who will give a master class entitled “Distribution and Promotion of an Audiovisual Work”. Furthermore, on its opening day, Moonface. A Woman in the War will be shown, and there will also be a preview screening of Salka en la tierra de nadie (which will be taking part in the EFM at the impending Berlinale), both of which are documentaries directed by Herrero himself.

Cineuropa got in touch with Xavi Herrero, who told us: “At this year’s festival, we’ve had a lot of support from local public and private institutions, which has allowed us to extend the duration of the event to ten days. Twenty-six directors are set to present their films, and we’re expecting more than 50 guests. We’re also organising an environmental-themed day for schools and a competitive section dedicated to feminism, with titles such as El proxeneta, a documentary by Mabel Lozano, and the short films Watermelon Juice by Irene Moray – which has just won a Goya – and 16 de decembro by Álvaro Gago. It’s the first year that we’ve organised this sidebar, and our objective is to develop it further in the years to come,” sums up the filmmaker and founder/director of Ibizacinefest.
