The new edition of the D’A Film Festival, to be held in Barcelona from 26 April to 6 May, is packed with ESCAC talent in all its sections.
Ana de día, the Opera Prima by Master in Directing alumni Andrea Jaurrieta, will be the closing film of the event. The film has just been presented at the Malaga Festival, where it competed in the official section.
In the Talents section, the festival’s competitive section, Jean-François i el sentit de la vida, directed by graduate Sergi Portabella, will be presented, with a team largely formed at the school. Also competing in this section is Trinta Lumes by Diana Toucedo, which was presented at the Berlinale and comes from the Malaga Festival – Zonazine.
Two other titles that have been shown in Malaga, I Hate New York (a documentary produced by J.A Bayona) and Matar al padre (a series by Mar Coll) will be present in the Special Sessions and Movistar+ Sessions sections respectively.
Within Impulso Colectivo, a section dedicated to the most independent new Spanish cinema, Quiero lo eterno by Miguel Angel Blanca and Trinta Lumes by Diana Toucedo will be screened. These two directors will also participate in the Meet the Directors by Moritz section. In the short film section, we find La inútil by Belén Funes, Bohèmia by Anna Petrus (alumni of the Master’s Degree in Directing) and Horta by Pilar Palomero (alumni of a screenwriting course).
Finally, in the Acció Viver Dones Visuals activity, the projects Las niñas by Pilar Palomero and Puerto deseado by Diana Toucedo have been selected.
