    Some very interesting ideas emerged such as involving the sales department from the very start of the project and including possible outlets amongst the initial considerations.

    Thus producers, directors and representatives from television continued the interesting discussion they had initiated the day before in the Workshop.

    Titled: Sports Themed Audiovisual: An Business Opportunity, the numerous participants gave us keys to and expressed their opinions on how to cope with the current difficulties.

    These opinions gave rise to a lively debate on how to overcome the problems.

    It was very obvious that the classical distribution channels were now completely obsolete and that new expressions such as: crowd-funding, Communications strategies, social media were prominent in the discussions.

    Participants included: Beatrice Coletti, director of Babel TV, Pio Vernis, partner in the WAW agency specialised in cinema, Sergi Agustí a director of documentaries, or Bruno Delaye, founder of the International Surf Film Festival as well as, of course, Tue Steen Müller who has been working for the Danish Film Board for more than 20 years.

  • THE FIRST DAY HAS COME TO AN END

    THE FIRST DAY HAS COME TO AN END

    Finished the first day of the BCN Sports Film 2012.

    Finished the first day of the BCN Sports Film 2012.

    As the doors close on the first day of the BCN Sports Film Festival, It is safe to say that, year after year, the quality of films on display at Barcelona's sports film event has been improving. Today's session is a case in point.

    During the day we have seen a number of audiovisuals from a variety of genres and sports including baseball or cycling and countries such as Bulgaria. The programme was open to a public of all ages.

    Our sessions for schools filled the Auditori Gran at the Joan-Antoni Samaranch Olympic and Sports museums with young laughter as the kids enjoyed shorts such as Le maillot de Cristiano or Summer Bummer which we joined on the screen with more poetic animations such as Missing or Deep and Dance.

    The afternoon at the Auditori Petit was for a family audience which served as the ideal setting for the presentation of the forthcoming Special Olympics.

    One of the novelties of this year's event that is deserving of special mention is the session held at the Barcelona Model Correctional Facility which goes to show that the Festival is determined to open up to the widest possible public.

    In the evening, the prestigious jury, comprising outstanding personalities from the sport, cultural and audiovisual worlds will announce their verdicts which will be made public at the closing ceremony on Saturday, 12th May.
