Adieu les cons di Albert Dupontel

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Barcelona's D'A Film Festival is back for an 11th edition — and in actual cinemas, too. Between 29 April and 9 May, the festival will offer a hybrid format, with screenings in cinemas in Barcelona (62 feature films and 26 shorts) and 37 titles available to view on the Filmin platform. This year, it’s also making a flying visit to Madrid: between 7 and 13 May, madrileños will have a chance to catch twelve of the festival’s most outstanding films at participating Renoir Plaza España cinemas.
