Following the success of last year’s inaugural edition (read more here), the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — led by Mariano Barroso — launched the second edition of its Residences programme on Monday, 5 October. The initiative, coordinated by Inés Enciso, is designed to offer intensive coaching to a talented cohort of creative filmmakers. Due to the current public health situation, this year’s edition will adopt a hybrid format, with some aspects moved online. The programme will continue until July 2021, during which time the selected participants will work on their projects with support and guidance from some of Spain’s most illustrious directors, including Isabel Coixet, Juan Cavestany, Belén Funes, Manuel Martín Cuenca, Víctor García León, Montxo Armendáriz, Carla Simón and Anna R. Costa.
A total of 931 entries were received for this year’s competition, both from Spain and from all over the world. Just 20 filmmakers were selected for the programme: ten women and ten men, eighteen from Spain and two from Cuba. Among the selected projects are the second feature by Pilar Palomero, entitled La maternal (Palermo is already an award-winning director, having scooped the Best Spanish Film award for Schoolgirls [+leggi anche:

At the opening ceremony on Monday 5 October, the Academy’s president, Mariano Barroso, extended his thanks to the Ayuntamiento de Madrid for its support of this second edition, “born of the need that all film makers feel to carve out a special place in which to realise our projects and our dreams.” This year, the programme has devised a hybrid format combining online activities and mentoring with in-person events, in order to ensure everyone’s safety in light of the current pandemic.
