Once again, Catalonia will be host to the very best of sports films covering all genres: documentaries; animated films and fiction all of which have received outstanding awards. This is your chance to enjoy some of the best audiovisual productions with sport at the centre, many of which are being premiered here.
The films highlight the values of sport such as dedication, competition and fair play whilst also showing lesser known facets: humour; eroticism; refugees; doping and the place of women in sport, whilst a special place has been reserved for minority sports. Your breath will be taken away by many spectacular images.
Outstanding highlights from the programme are: Paradigm Lost, a feature film that was shown at the section Cinema Sauvage in the Sant Sebastian Festival; Dear Basketball, the recent winner of the Oscar for Best Animated Film; Roller Dreams which is being shown for the first time in Spain; Pelé – O Rei Desconhecido which includes hitherto unseen archive clips of the mythical star of football, filmed both on and off the pitch and some episodes from The Tiniest Man in the World by the Argentinian director Juan Pablo Zaramella.
All activities will be free.
