7th EDITION 2020
26th FEB - 15th MAR
Edinburgh & Glasgow
IS COMING SOON
The blend of what is real and what is constructed has become a common trend in the documentary genre over the last decade. The 7th edition of the Ibero-American Documentary Film Festival in Scotland creates a safe space to open a dialogue between genres and disciplines.
In this inclusive space we will focus on isolation, colonialism and migration - themes that are relevant around the globe today. We look in to how gender roles are evolving in an atmosphere of rising inequality, growing feelings of anger and a political climate that is becoming ever more polarised.
As well as a main programme curated in collaboration with Multistory Film and Luso Film presenting films predominantly by Portuguese filmmakers, we bring you two new strands. ‘Beyond Docs’ showcases films bending the line between fiction and documentary, and ‘Diving In To The Archives’ screens classic films with a twist, including a screening of Luis Buñuel’s Land Without Bread with a new live soundtrack by Spanish musicians Duo Montjuïc. In all, we present 19 films, including Scottish and European premieres. Many screenings also come with special introductions, post-screening Q&As with filmmakers and lively discussions.
This year’s events include masterclasses, panel discussions, a family friendly capoeira workshop, live Fado music and a Spanish language book presentation.
