Discover upcoming Catalan docs at IDFA

    In addition to having films and projects across the IDFA program, the Catalan delegation arrives at the festival with five new projects directed by women, which will be presented at their Meetup on November 25.

    The Catalan delegation at IDFA is led by Catalan Films & TV, the driving force behind the internationalization of the Catalan audiovisual industry and DocsBarcelona, the flagship documentary film festival in Spain. The region is represented at IDFA by 14 productions in different sections of the festival and the markets, and with 16 companies that participate in industry activities.

    Marta Romero's Facunda has its international premiere in the IDFA Competition for Short Documentary, while two Catalan projects took part in IDFA Forum: Angel - Diary of a Planned Death by Fernando González, and DocLab entry Burn the Cuckoo's Nest by Jo Sol.

    In addition, director and producer Efthymia Zymvragaki is participating in IDFAcademy with her project A Sad and Vulgar Loner.

    There are six Catalan titles in the Docs for Sale catalogue: Un blues para Teherán by Javier Tolentino, Erasmus in Gaza by Chiara Avesani and Matteo Delbó, The Man Who Wanted to See It All by Albert Albacete, The Mystery of the Pink Flamingos by Javier Polo, Postwar Albums by Angel Leiro and Airy Maragall, and the above-mentioned Facunda.

    New projects

    At the Catalan Meetup on November 25 at 14:00, which is open to all accredited professionals, the delegation will present five new projects in different stages of development, all directed by women.

    "Five projects directed by women which represent the new Catalan wave, a new generation of filmmakers that are raising their voices in the deeply complex context we live in," says Catalan Films & TV Coordinator Mar Medir. "These filmmakers and projects have a very strong common point: the international point of view. Feminism, education, cyber hacking, non-future-outsiders, historical memory, it’s time for powerful gazes in these turbulent times."

    The projects are:

    Ole mi coño
    Director: Patricia Franquesa
    Production companies: Gaeda Films, Ringo Media

    Tolyatti Adrift
    Director: Laura Sisteró
