In bizarre times such as these, we can be thankful whenever events, large or small, decide to persevere and continue fuelling the passion of film buffs. That’s why it’s such good news that Ibizacinefest – Ibiza International Independent Film Festival is also staying loyal to its annual rendezvous and is lifting its (virtual) curtain on 26 February, offering a carefully curated programme of arthouse and alternative films on the Filmin platform. Headed up with passion and tenacity by Xavi Herrero (the helmer of works such as Salka, In No Man’s Land [+lire aussi :

), its fifth edition will continue online until 7 March, with on-site events planned for April, depending on the health situation then (these will be announced in due time on the gathering’s website and via its social networks).

On this occasion, in its competitive Official Panorama Section, the Balearic festival will showcase European films of the likes of Birdsong (Belgium), a young Japanese woman’s descent into hell as she endeavours to succeed in the music world at any price, helmed by Hendrik Willemyns; In My Dream (Turkey) by Murat Çeri, about a boy traumatised by an accident, who strikes up a special relationship with a donkey; Marana (Italy), in which Davide Provolo and Giovanni Benini delve into the world of autism; and Elsewhere, Everywhere (France) by Isabelle Ingold and Vivianne Perelmuter, an Iranian man’s journey across Europe, as observed by the very screens and lenses that are monitoring him. Then there are Latin American films such as La vida en común by Argentina’s Ezequiel Yanco, Fractal by Mexico’s Mariana González, Killing the Dead by Paraguay’s Hugo Giménez, the Bolivian production The Names of the Flowers by Bahman Tavoosi, and even Asian movies of the calibre of Woman of the Photograph by Japan’s Takeshi Kushida alongside US efforts like Stalking Chernobyl: Exploration after Apocalypse, a depiction of that infamous, accursed, extravagant titular Russian tourist destination, courtesy of Iara Lee.
