Sections and activities with their own personality

NOVES VISIONS will include films like Otto; or up with Dead People, by Bruce LaBruce, with a gay zombie as its leading character; Beautiful, by Juhn Jaihong, a disciple of Kim Ki-duk; and the new movie incursion by Daniel Myrick, one of the creators of The Blair Witch Project, entitled The Objective.

NOVA AUTORIA will continue to support new creators, with the SGAE's sponsorship.

As it does every year, ANIMA'T will be committed to the best Japanese anime, and will be showing the excellent health of independent European and North American cinema from this past year with proposals like Idiots & Angels, by Bill Plympton, and a large selection of short films.

ORIENT EXPRESS, sponsored by Casa Asia, will continue with its commitment to the best productions from Asian countries like Takeshi Kitano's hilarious transformation into a Japanese monster in the film The Monster X strikes Back: Attack on the G8 Summit, by Minoru Kawasaki.

SEVEN CHANCES continues to count on the special collaboration of the most outstanding film critics.

BRIGADOON will be giving the Nosferatu Award to Umberto Lenzi, creator of movies like Incubo sulla città contaminata (NightmareCity) and Gatti rossi in un labirinto di vetro (Eyeball), and will organize debates revolving around subjects like piracy, the relationship between music, horror and clips, plus more surprises.

The Festival will specially recall the 40th anniversary of George A. Romero's emblematic movie, Night of the Living Dead with diverse activities and the presence of the director himself.

Young people's opinions will also be present again this year thanks to the 4th Edition of the Carnet Jove Jury, to allow this group that is so important to the Festival to express itself. The period for receiving the candidate list finalized on July 15th with remarkable participation. At the end of September the five members of the jury will be chosen, and their duty will be to award two prizes: the Carnet Jove Jury Award for Best Motion Picture from the Oficial Fantàstic Selection and the Carnet Jove Jury Award for Best Motion Picture in the Midnight X-Treme Category.

Catalan Films & TV will be attending Sitges 08 once again to support Catalan production and will be holding the Industry Meeting Point, as well as organizing two theme days: the first on International Marketing and the second on Video Games and Cinema.
