The Maremostra Festival & Sitges renew their collaboration

The Maremostra - Palma International Film Festival and the Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia are renewing their collaboration for the second year in a row. This way, Sitges will backing the Majorcan Festival’s Maremonstruo category with two films from last year’s edition: Blackfish and Europa Report.

The documentary Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and premiering at the 2013 Sundance Festival, revolves around the story of Tilikum: a killer whale from the Seaworld Park in the United States that was responsible for the death of one of its trainers. Through the story of this specimen, the film contemplates the consequences of these great sea mammals’ life in captivity.

On the other hand, Europa Report is an American science fiction movie that follows the story of Europa One’s special mission during its journey to Jupiter´s fourth moon: Europa. An expedition in search of alien life where all contact is lost with the ship. Its director is Ecuadorian filmmaker Sebastián Cordero.

As in 2013, the directors of the Sitges Festival, Ángel Sala and Mike Hostench, will be visiting Palma to follow Maremostra’s third edition from up close and take part in some of its activities. On Friday May 30th, Ángel Sala will be participating as a stellar guest presenter during the live broadcast of the show Cinebasura on Canal + Xtra. In addition, the Majorcan Festival will be programming two other films that participated in the Catalan Festival´s 2012 edition: La Cueva and The Bay.

The leitmotiv for Sitges 2014, that will be held from October 3 to 12, are dreams and it has already announced some of the films at this 47th edition, which will be opening with the eagerly awaited [REC]4 Apocalipsis, by Jaume Balagueró.
