A scene from Good Time

D'A: Barcelona’s annual date with art-house film

The festival, which is scheduled to begin on 26 April, comes with a wealth of  titles that haven't made it to the commercial circuit.

The D'A Festival emerged a few years ago with the aim of providing succor to Barcelona’s many unconditional fans of quality cinema. Unlike Catalonia’s other grand festival, the Sitges International Film Festival, D’A focuses on art house productions that don’t normally make it to commercial cinema networks. This year’s programme, which will run from 26 April to 6 May, is full of auteur treats, including Chesil Beach, Dominic Cooke's film adaptation of the homonymous novel by Ian McEwan, which can be seen at the festival before its official release, and the UK thriller Good Time which can be seen here for the first time on the big screen, since its premiere was a Netflix TV exclusive.

Nearly half of the programme consists of Spanish films, including quality independent productions which will premiere in Barcelona, such as I Hate New York, by Gustavo Sánchez, a documentary about the transsexual scene in New York since the 1990s. Among the International films in the programme are L'amant d'un jour by Philippe Garrel, the Korean title The Day After, a new film by Canadian avant-garde director Guy Maddin, The Green Fog, and Alive in France, Abel Ferrara’s latest production.
