L’Alternativa – Barcelona Independent Film Festival has reached its 26th edition and proudly continues to offer audiences and professionals alike “the opportunity to enjoy screenings and activities that champion auteurs’ creative independence, diversity, innovation, freedom, commitment and reflection”, according to the introduction on the gathering’s website. With three competitive sections – encompassing national titles, short films and international features – another one that rotates a number of tributes (enabling attendees to discover new creators and film industries) and a third focused on family films, it looks likely to fulfil its promise of bringing a varied array of surprises to the Catalonian city. In addition, it will offer master classes, debates, round-tables, symposia, creative workshops for both children and adults, and film-school seminars. The event’s crowning glory will be the tenth Professional Days and the Mentoring Projects.

The seventh edition of Mentoring Projects is a space that the L’Alternativa professional strand devotes to fostering projects currently in development, taking advantage of the festival’s clout as a platform to increase the visibility of indie film in general. On this occasion, 18 projects have been selected from among the 137 that were received, and they are at different stages of development (ranging from the very first version of the screenplay or even the treatment, right up to post-production) and take in various genres. The company Antaviana Films will hand out its award to the most original and viable project – this prize is worth €2,500 and consists of the DCP digital mastering of the winning work.
