The two days of celebrations include activities and screenings for all of the family.
Sunday 19 February is devoted to activities for the whole family, and young and old alike will have the opportunity to explore the history and prehistory of film. The day will kick off at 4pm with two hours of entertainment for children in the foyer of the MODIband building. From 4.30 to 7pm, in Espai Delmiro de Caralt, the Taller GIFinoscopi workshop by Drac Màgic will teach us how to make gifs from the Filmoteca’s collection of historical film related objects. On the same afternoon there will be three guided visits to the exhibition Les façanes de Can Pistoles featuring advertising posters from the old Cinema Capitol, which is set to run until 26 February.
Sunday’s activities will be complemented by five screening: two sessions of short films for kids with Per molts curts!, at 4.30pm and 5pm, the first for children over two years of age and the other for those over seven; the classic Norwegian stop-motion film Flaklypa Grand Prix (Ivo Caprino, 1975) at 6pm; the 3D children’s film Hugo (Martin Scorsese, 2011) at 8pm; and, at 9.30pm, El hombre que quiso ser Segundo, a 2014 documentary on Segundo de Chomón, a pioneering figure in Spanish cinema, which will be attended by its director Ramon Alòs.
The second day, Tuesday 21 February, features three films for adults. At 5pm, Iberia (Carlos Saura, 2005); at 6pm the silent film classic The Phantom of the Opera (Rupert Julian, 1926) with Joan Pineda on the piano: and at 8pm, a pre-premiere of Una historia de locos (Robert Guédiguian, 2015), a drama about the Aermenian genocide. Both Carlos Saura and Robert Guédiguian will be attending the screenings of their films.
