Initially celebrated in 2004, the Colombian Film Festival (known as Diáspora) has arrived at its 10th edition and, as usual, will be offering a carefully chosen selection of the best and most-acclaimed recent films from the South American country.
Between the 21st and 31st of October a total of 35 films, including full-length and short films, both fictional and documentary, will be shown in various venues around the city: Cinemes Girona, FNAC El Triangle, Biblioteca Gòtic-Andreu Nin, Casa Amèrica, Centre Civic Pati Limona, Espai Avinyó, Llengua i Cultura, Museu d’Història de Catalunya and Espai Jove La Fontana.
The objective of the festival has always been to promote cultural dialog between the two countries using Colombian cinema as a medium and also to promote Colombian cinema on an international level.
The programme for this edition includes many films that have received international recognition in festivals such as Sundance, Venice, Cannes and Berlin, such as Chocó, by Jhonny Hendrix, a portrait of the family and working life of a 27-year-old woman, Gordo, calvo y bajito, an animated film by Carlos Osuna about a grown man who is controlled by his own insecurity, the documentary by Patricia Ayala titled, Don Ca, and Sofía y el terco a fictional film directed by Andrés Burgos and starring the popular Spanish actress, Carmen Maura.
