The Sitges Festival travels the Catalan territory

The film competitions FIC-CAT, in Roda de Berà and Galacticat, in Tàrrega have hosted different initiatives launched by Sitges

The Sitges - International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia left its mark this weekend at two different points from the Catalan film scene. Roda de Berà and Tàrrega were the settings for genre cinema with screenings and the exhibition Cinema is Fantastic, commemorating the Festival’s 50th anniversary.

The space called Pantalla Sitges – Sitges Screen - was present at the 12th edition of the FIC-CAT, the Costa Daurada International Festival of Cinema in Catalan, a collaboration that is already in its fifth consecutive year. The evening of Sunday, June 9th, Sitges’ Director Ángel Sala presented the section with the screening of Anguish, by Bigas Luna (1946-2013), a production from 1987 that was the director’s first foray into horror movies. That very same year, the film was presented at the Sitges Festival and was later rescued for the Sitges Clàssics category in 2011. Its cinematographer, Josep Maria Civit, was the recipient of an honorary prize at FIC-CAT 2019, as a part of the same screening.

In addition, Galacticat, the Western Fantastic and Horror Film Festival, which is currently holding its sixth edition in Tàrrega, is housing the exhibition Cinema is Fantastic, coproduced by the Filmoteca de Catalunya –The Film Library of Catalonia- and the Sitges Festival, and curated by Diego López. The exhibition can be visited free of charge until next Sunday, June 16th.
