2. All scheduled screenings starting after 11 pm are cancelled.

3. All of the Festival's parallel events are cancelled: screenings at the Hort de Can Falç, screenings and activities at the Miramar Cultural Center, the Bloodmuts and the Puck Caravan Cinema.

4. The Fanshop Area (stands fair) in front of the San Sebastian Chapel is cancelled.

5. The Foodtàstic Food Truck Area will remain open but only with take-away service, pending clarification by PROCICAT. 

6. The scheduled double bills are reduced to the screening of a single film. Please check the listings.

The Festival will return the cost of the tickets purchased for the cancelled screenings directly to the purchasers in the same account or card where the purchase was made.

With this series of measures, the Festival increases its protection protocol against Covid-19, making its theaters a safe space for screening. Remember that the Festival's entire official circuit has a customized control system that can be consulted on the website www.sitgesfilmfestival.info
