Europa, epicentro dell'Atlàntida Film Fest 2019
Only You di Harry Wootliff

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

The Atlàntida Film Fest, a festival organised by the VoD platform Filmin, turns nine this year. We can be grateful for the fact that the event will be championing arthouse film once again, allowing it to be enjoyed not only by those who find themselves in the beautiful city of Palma (Majorca), the gathering’s physical HQ, but also by those who wish to sample its cinematic offerings online, from other locations around the globe. The former category of film buffs will be able to fill their boots from 1 until 7 July, while the rest can do so during the entire month of July. Its sizeable programme includes a huge batch of titles that turn their attention to Europe, complete with its countless concerns, conflicts and contradictions.

). Before that, British filmmaker Ken Loach will shake the hand of Spanish helmer Fernando León de Aranoa as he collects the Masters of Cinema Award, granted to him by the Mallorca Film Commission in recognition of his career, which has been marked by a strong social dimension.

Of the 110 titles that will get an airing at the 2019 Atlàntida Film Fest, some European ones that really stand out, on account of their sheer audacity or the awards they have picked up at other festivals, are: Letters to Paul Morrissey [+leggi anche:

In addition, Filmin is organising – as an integral part of the Atlàntida Film Fest – the Mallorca Talents Lab event, where the teams behind six feature-length projects will take part in a four-day training session (unspooling from 1-4 July, in Palma) led by renowned professionals from the Spanish audiovisual sector. Starting this year, it also boasts a partnership with Filmarket Hub, an online fiction feature, documentary and series market operating in both Europe and Latin America, which will include the six projects that have been selected in its catalogue, thus serving as a hub linking creators and producers, distributors, and the heads of the main TV channels and OTT platforms. All of this will increase the teams’ chances of finding potential co-producers or buyers. The titles selected to take part in this edition of the Mallorca Talents Lab are: Ángela by Gemma BlascoA Woman’s House by Victoria Ellm, Buscant l’Alícia by Alba Cros, Divino tesoro by Guillem ManzanaresLas mantis by Dídac Gimeno and Marina Velázquez, and I Need Your Love by Pol Rebaque.
