Five ESCAC graduates and alumni won awards yesterday at the 11th edition of the Gaudí Awards awarded by the Acadèmia del Cinema Català: Best Short Film, Best Visual Effects, Best Film and the Audience Award for ESCAC Talent.

Best film in Catalan language:

  • Les distàncies, with Elena Trapé in direction, Miguel Ibañez Monroy in screenplay, Liana Artigal in editing, Julián Elizalde in cinematography and Jordi Rossinyol Colomer in sound.

Elena Trapé dedicated the award to ESCAC founder Josep Maixenchs with these words: «Many of us who are here today are here partly because there was a man who was passionate about cinema and a hard worker, who fought for there to be a film school, and I would like to dedicate the award to Josep Maixenchs.»

Best short film: 

  • La última virgen, by Bárbara Farré and with a technical team made up of graduates from the school. Final year short film produced by Escac Films.

Best visual effects:

This is the fourth Gaudí Award for Lluís Rivera (sound graduate and founder of the company In Extremis), who already won them for Anacleto Agente Secreto (2016), REC 4 Apocalipsis (2015) and Los últimos días (2014). Both could repeat this coming Saturday as they are nominated for the Goya Awards.

  • Viaje al cuarto de una madre, with Master in Production alumni Mar Medir as executive producer.
