The Opening Night of the Catalan Film Festival in Glasgow!

A selection of internationally awarded Catalan short-films with the presence of Directors David Moragas and Marga Almirall joining us in person and discussing their films after the screening.

The programme of films for the opening night includes films seen in Visions du Reel, Warsaw, Vancouver, Palm Springs or BFI Flare London festivals. Films full of political commentary, dance, lightness and love, filmed letters as well as moving thought provoking films.

Stories of Catalan expats living (and dancing) in Glasgow, lovers lost in Barcelona crossing Whatsapp audios, essays bringing together poetry and film, sorority, friendship and mental health, visually mesmerising perspectives on Catalan rural world and urban queer love and despair. We have all that is needed for a Big Opening <3

Films in this programme:

El que encara ens balla (What Still Dances to us) - Marga Almirall

Demà ho deixem (Tomorrow then) - David Moragas

Little Girls Always Say the Truth - Virginia G del Pino

Mater Inerta - Adria E. Goy

Through the Empty Dance Floor - Pablo García Canga

Need more? We are proud to have three directors David Moragas and Marga Almirall in person.

David Moragas, Catalan writer/ director, he is nominated to Best Short Film to the Gaudi Awards 2023 with Demà Ho Deixem (Tomorrow Then)

Marga Almirall and Mireia Rigau will join us too, protagonists and creators of El que Encara ens balla (What Still Dances to us), a moving film documenting their distance friendship between Barcelona and Glasgow as they deal with diaspora, loneliness and mental health challenges.

* This event is part of the 8th Catalan Film Festival, with more screenings at CCA and GFT. More info: www.catalanfilmfestival.com
