Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

On 7 June, the Filmadrid International Film Festival, headed up by Nuria Cubas and Fernando Vílchez Rodríguez, will kick off its fourth edition, set to unspool in the Spanish capital until Saturday 16 June. With a spirit that is just as daring, ground-breaking and alternative as it was at its inception, the programme continues to put its faith in films that are not usually shown in mainstream Spanish cinemas, and indeed, some will never get a release. Said movies can be seen chiefly in the Cineteca, Spanish Film Library, Casa Encendida, Sala Equis, Círculo de Bellas Artes and Complutense University.
