DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL and VILANOVA BEACH FESTIVAL
As we mentioned last week regarding the LOOP film festival, Barcelona has become a sort of “hub” for the film industry, with new festivals and exhibitions popping up every year to give would-be film directors the opportunity to learn more about their industry.
DocsBarcelona 2013 is the 16th edition of the annual film festival that was started to help promote young documentary directors. The documentaries will be shown across different cinemas in the city such as Aribau Multicines, Cinemas Renoir Floridablanca and Biblioteca Vilapicina I la Torre Llobeta. The DocsBarcelona Pitching forum acts as a market of financing and promotion for the documentary industry, and is the perfect place to promote and finance your project(s) to potential financiers and distributors.
More information about the program, screening and general information about the festival and the Pitching Forum can be found on the official website.
JUANITA´S VILANOVA BEACH FESTIVAL
On 8 and 9 June will mark the first edition of Juanita’s Vilanova Beach Festival, a festival sponsored by the City of Vilanova y la Geltru and other organizations in the city, with the intention of bringing people to the beach and its activities. Check out their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/JuanitasVilanova
The Club del Mar, founded a few years ago by Catalan windsurfers and skaters, will be responsible for organizing all activities related to paddle surfing, a sport that is gaining popularity amongst participants and to promote the club, since they believe that their beach is best for this sport.
They would like to invite all companies linked to this sport, schools, shops, distributors, to participate in this first edition and consolidate this festival among all future editions.
During the whole weekend you can enjoy a good time on the beach as well as in the water within the determined space provided.
The highlight will be a night journey, starting at sunset inside the port. After making a stop at the club for dinner after dark, you will be passing by all the city´s beaches. Parallel along the promenade participants can join in activities of long board and skate and finish the day with a concert at the Dorada Beach Club.
They would like it to be a weekend full of activities and therefore ask the cooperation of all professionals who want to participate in it, is to raise awareness of new gear and equipment, as well as training at both the beginner and improvement levels.
All those interested in participating should contact the organizers as soon as possible to arrange the available space on the beach and schedule activities.
