CinemaAttic
SCAT | Catalan Shorts + Festival Opening Party

Fri 2 November 2018

Cinemaattic brings a new edition of Scotland Catalan Film Festival - SCAT 2018

CCA hosts the opening night of SCAT 18. A hand-crafted selection of the best Catalan short-films seen in the past year. From the ever cosmopolita Barcelona to the rural landscapes of Catalonia.

The programme will feature a multicultural Barcelona dealing with migrants’ integration and political documentaries on Spain’s problem with historic memory.

Catalonia is living a golden generation of women filmmakers and this programme reflects both punk and realistic approaches that some of these great new directors are investigating with their films.

VHS, zines, feminism and the myth of misogynist Pygmalion are at the heart of this award winning programme of shorts that will take audiences from Calais’ Jungle to the deep rural Catalonia. Animation, Documentary, Experimental and even a visual essay on genders, desires and sexualities.

A brutal selection programmed by film punks Cinemaattic to open SCAT 18. From Cannes winner Shorts to small poetic approaches to reality.

SCAT Opening: Saramago Rumba Party
Don't miss the chance to dive into Mediterranean beer and explore Catalan gastronomy with a special menu created for this event while a special DJ set explore the roots of “Rumba Catalana” and its later variations.
