What you have in your hands is the summary of what the people of FOTO-FILM CALELLA presents in this new edition of the FESTIMATGE, the Festival of Image in Calella.
We have been working to be able to offer you, within the three great sections that form the FESTIMATGE, a whole series of proposed varieties, and some quite daring, that we believe will be to your liking and will allow you to enjoy the image in all its aspects, both Calella people like who visit us throughout the month of April.
As a result of the works received in our Trofeu Torretes of Short Films, you will find views of short films from around the world, of diverse themes, made by new people or by directors and actors already established.
The festival also offers two photography workshops and 24 photographic exhibitions, including that of our Trofeu Torretes de Fotografía, which, touching many subjects, puts a lot of ideas and stories within reach of the visitor, which surely will not leave you indifferent.
For the most nostalgic, in the section of the 9.5mm format we also have many activities that bring together people from many countries.
And wrapping up the FESTIMATGE we celebrate the 130th Anniversary of the birth of Charles Chaplin, a great genius of the image in every way.
We wait for you!
Be WELCOME to your FESTIMATGE!
Mr. Xavier Rigola, President of Foto-Film Calella
Live the images in Calella
Over the last decades, various activities arising from the private initiative have been consolidating Calella’s position in the Catalan audiovisual map, an activity that justified the promotion of the “Calella Film Office”, aimed at addressing any initiative aimed at converting The city on a set.
The origins of this long local audiovisual tradition are found in the constant and disinterested work of a good group of fellow citizens gathered around Foto-Film Calella who, fleeing from conformism, have invested time, efforts and dedication to create, maintain and grow an international festival.
Throughout the month of April, Calella will be the capital of the image thanks to the 15 Festival of the Image of Calella, “Festimatge” willing, as never before, to delight movie lovers in its purest form, focusing much of the acts of this edition around the 130th anniversary of the birth of Charles Chaplin, the undisputed icon of a silent film that, even today, leaves us speechless.
Thank you very much, one more year, for your commitment!
Mrs. Montserrat Candini, Mayor of Calella
