On Sunday the 1st of February, beginning at 10 pm, the Sant Jordi Club, Montjuïc, will play host to the 7th edition of the Gaudí Awards. The ceremony, which will be televised live on TV3, will honour the best Catalan films of 2014 and will be presented for the second year running by Àngel Llàcer. A total of 27 productions have been nominated this year, including favourites such as Falling Star, 10,000 Km, Born, El Niño, Traces of Sandalwood and Beautiful Youth.

The films opting for the Best Film Awards are Born, Claudio Zulian’s film set in Barcelona in 1714, André Cruz Shiraiwa’s L’Altra Frontera (The Other Frontier), set in a wartime refugee camp, Traces of Sandalwood, by Maria Ripoll, a tale of love and personal discovery set between Catalonia and India, and Falling Star, by Lluís Miñarro, a liberal, “pop” perspective on the brief reign of Amadeo I of Spain.

The films nominated for the Gaudí Award for Best Non-Catalan Language Film are Carlos Marques-Marcet’s 10,000 Km, a tale of long-distance love, Daniel Monzón’s El Niño, a thriller about drug smuggling in the Straits of Gibraltar, Jaime Rosales’s Beautiful Youth, the story of an unemployed couple’s fight for survival, and [REC] 4: Apocalypse, Jaume Balaguero’s final instalment in the now-famous horror series.
