Virtual meeting with Goya and Gaudi candidates

Next Thursday January 14th at 7pm we will have a virtual meeting with some of the graduates candidates for the Goya and Gaudí Awards to learn about their experience.

There are different paths that have led our graduates to be present in the shortlist for the main awards of our cinematography; in some cases it is the End of Degree Project, in others a second short film already out of school; the result of an international exchange program, the first work done in one of the ESCAC Labs or the debut film after studying the Master in Film Direction. All of them will talk about their time at the school, their jump into the industry and their next projects.

  • Adrià Guxens with NO CREO QUE VAYA A LLOVER. Corto documental candidato al Gaudí.
