  • Spanish festival 2021

    I've just received the poster of the festival held yearly at Calella, close to Barcelona. The 2020 edition had to be cancelled because of the the virus. Hopefully, the situation will improve and the 2021 edition will happen. At least, the fact that it's scheduled gives us some hope.

      No doubt some support from the UK would be more than appreciated by our Spanish enthusiasts since, sadly, the number of atendees has shrinked over the last years.

        UPDATE : due to the situation, this year the edition will be replaced by a life 9.5 projections session on Internet. This event will happen on the 1st May. The organizators didn't want just to report to 2022 and let us without anything this year. I will provide the technical informations when I get them.

                        Author: Hugh Hale - UK - Length: 4 min.

                        Hugh Hale describes in this film, ironically, the seaside as a musseum of sand sculptures that can be visited for about two months a year and where the "sculptures" change every day and often they come from different countries.

                        2-- Une fĂȘte pour les enfants

                        Author: Marc Boucher - France - Length: 9 min.

                        Marc Boucher shows in this film, the complex work of some adults preparing a party for children, imagining all kinds of games for them to have fun, and where, perhaps, in the end both adults and children will play......

                        3-- Looking Around

                        Author: Hugh Hale - UK - Length: 4,5 min.

                        Reportage presented by Hugh Hale and made in his early days as a filmmaker. To learn the cinema's technique, he enrolled in a school of arts and sciences workshops. A film workshop were also on the list and obviously 9,5mm was the film format. The students of the film course made this report filming all the different workshops on the school and ending with a short film as a final project.

                        4-- Noisette, Indienne et les autres

                        Josep Lluis Viscarri presents this reportage "document". It was filmed in 1980, when Pere Coma retired and, therefore, his cinema stall located outside the Sant Antoni market in Barcelona disappeared forever. Many friends gathered that last day around his stall as a farewell. The film was made in black and white, and the process made by the author himself.

                        6-- The Destroyers

                        Author: Hugh Hale - UK - Length: 3,5 min.

                        If you like the very typical 9.5mm comedy silent films, you will like this film presented by Hugh Hale. Made in black and white, it is inspired by the shapes of classic comedies we all know and shows us how little skill people can have in their daily work.

                        7-- Le paradis retrouvé

                        Author: Paul Bigou - France - Length: 14 min.

                        Paul Bigou presents this documentary in which we will undoubtedly enjoy nature and the incredible places that are in the "Pyrénées National Park". Pure nature that this film will allow us to know. (Shot in the exclusive Super 9.5mm film format, as there are no projectors available, we made an exception and accepted it in digital format.)

                        8-- Visite du parc Catalunya en Miniatura

                        Jean Penavayre, a filmmaker who regularly visits us at our 9.5mm film meetings in Calella, presents a documentary made in 2001 during the 28th Calella festival. That year the cultural outing took us to visit the "Catalunya en miniatura" park and Mr. Penavayre made a reportage that we can enjoy on this occasion. (Shot in the exclusive Super 9.5mm film format, as there are no projectors, we made an exception and accepted it in digital format.)
