Spanish Screenings

Ayer tuvo lugar en El Candado Beach la clausura de Spanish Screenings Content, la primera parada de Spanish Screenings XXL, que se ha celebrado en el Festival de Málaga del 21 al 24 de marzo y que tendrá su próxima cita en el evento Financing & Tech del Festival de San Sebastián. 

Juan Antonio Vigar, director del Festival de Málaga, ha pasado el relevo a José Luis Rebordinos, su homólogo en el Festival de San Sebastián. Vigar ha destacado que “Spanish Screenings es parte de un proyecto más global, que ha nacido del impulso de ICAA e ICEX a los que agradezco su apoyo y que han hecho posible que el trabajo que veníamos realizando se pueda redimensionar”. Añadió que “es un proyecto que ha tenido su primera fase en Málaga, que acabamos de compartir todos” y agradeció a la industria internacional su presencia.

El relevo se ha simbolizado en un abrazo entre los dos directores. José Luis Rebordinos, por su parte, ha hecho una breve introducción de los contenidos de Financing & Tech agradeciendo también su apoyo a ICAA e ICEX y a la “excelente acogida” que siempre le brinda Málaga. También ha felicitado al Festival de Málaga por su “creciente internacionalización” y ha añadido que “ambos festivales comparten algo fundamental: el apoyo al cine español y latinoamericano” y que “ninguno de los dos tendría sentido sin este objetivo primordial”. Ha cerrado su intervención añadiendo que “San Sebastián será la segunda parada de Spanish Screenings XXL y que el Festival está ya trabajando en dos direcciones: el fortalecimiento de la sección Zinemaldia & Technology, que nació en 2018, tendrá en su próxima edición un marcado componente español y la creación de un encuentro de fondos de inversión de primer nivel internacional a los que se presentarán proyectos españoles en busca de financiación”.

Spanish Screenings Content passes a Financing & Tech at the San Sebastian Festival

The closing ceremony of Spanish Screenings Content, the first event of Spanish Screenings XXL, which was held at the Malaga Film Festival from 21 to 24 March, took place yesterday at El Candado Beach and will have its next appointment at the Financing & Tech event at the San Sebastian Film Festival.

Juan Antonio Vigar, director of the Malaga Festival, has passed the baton to José Luis Rebordinos, his counterpart at the San Sebastian Festival. Vigar emphasized that “Spanish Screenings is part of a broader project, which was born out of the impulse of the ICAA and ICEX. I thank them for their support; They have made it possible for the work we have done over the years to be redimensioned”. He added that “it is a project that has had its first stage in Malaga, which we have just shared” and thanked the international industry for its presence.

The handover was represented by an embrace between the two directors. José Luis Rebordinos, for his part, gave a brief introduction to the contents of Financing & Tech, also thanking the ICAA and ICEX for their support and the “warm reception” he has always received. He also congratulated the Malaga Festival for its “ increasing internationalization” and added that “both festivals share something fundamental: support for Spanish and Latin American cinema and neither of them would make sense without this fundamental objective”.

 

He closed his speech by adding that “San Sebastian will be the second stop for Spanish Screenings XXL and that the Festival is already working in two directions: the reinforcement of the Zinemaldia & Technology section, which was born in 2018 and will have a strong Spanish presence in its next edition, and the creation of a meeting of top-level international investment funds to which Spanish projects in search of financing will be presented”.
