Sitges Summer Edition offers a full weekend of online content

Different films presented at the Festival will be available from August 28th to 30th

A total of ten options, presented at the 2018 and 2019 editions of the Sitges Film Festival, can be enjoyed online this weekend with

Sitges Summer Edition. This initiative aims to introduce the Festival's fans to the new virtual cinema that will be incorporated into the hybrid version of the upcoming 53rd edition. Shift72, the platform that has hosted the 2020 editions of international festivals such South by Southwest in Austin or the Marché du Film in Cannes, will be in charge of hosting this content, as well as the online version of Sitges 2020.

The giallo Abrakadabra, directed by brothers Luciano and Nicolás Onetti, is one of the films that will be available in Sitges Summer Edition. Murders, sex and investigations for independent horror movie lovers. Another online option for this weekend is An American Satan, a documentary by Aram Garriga about the controversial Church of Satan in California, always surrounded by mysteries, scandals and moral panic. The Brazilian film The Nightshifter, by Dennison Ramalho, will also be available on Shift72. The night watchman at a morgue has the gift of communicating with the dead, a knack that will soon pose a threat to him. And closing the feature film section is Luz: The Flower of Evil, by Colombian Juan Diego Escobar Alzate, a poetic film set in an isolated community headed by a preacher known as “El Señor” (The Lord).

Turning to short films, Sitges Summer Edition invites us to recall seven pieces: Víctor Catalán's A Little Taste, Jaime Herrero's Rito de paso, Sofía Carrillo's The Wandering Witch, Marc Martínez Jordán's Your Last Day on Earth, David Hebrero's Paralelos, Álvaro Vicario's Polter and Gabriel Campoy and Guillem Lafoz's Helena.

Sitges Summer Edition's screenings will be available from Friday August 28th to Sunday 30th at sitgesfilmfestival.online. Prices will be five euros for each feature film and one euro per short film, with the possibility of buying a short film pack for five euros. Once a film has been purchased, it will be available for the following 30 hours, exclusively within Spain.
