WE WANT IT! In a complicated time like the one we are living in, we have thought that we can no longer take a step back, we must look forward with hope as a touchstone. That’s why, “WE WANT IT”, we thought it would be a good slogan for this 2021 CELEBRATION.
The whole team that is preparing this new edition of the FESTIMATGE in Calella has been working, with enthusiasm, to put at your disposal a whole series of events, some in person, others online, for the sole purpose you enjoy. of the image as such, whether in the form of short films, photographic exhibitions or in the “9.5mm” format, the dean of cinema formats for the popular cinema fan.
In this catalog, you will find everything we have proposed for the new edition of the FESTIMATION during this April 2021. And, if every year, we have had an answer growing both visitors and participants in our Turret Trophies, either in photography as in short films, we hope that this year, once again, you will make us side and visit the exhibitions, workshops and short film screenings, whatever form face-to-face or telematic. It is understood that the health safety guidelines set by the health authorities will be followed, thread by thread, at all times in all our acts.
We would like to say that, once this year’s edition is over, we can proudly say that we have managed to overcome this precarious situation and that CULTURE ALWAYS OVERCOMES.
WE ARE WAITING FOR YOU AT THIS OUR FESTIVAL 2021 IN CALELLA.

Live the images in Calella
Over the last few decades, various activities arising from the private initiative have been consolidating Calella’s position on the Catalan audiovisual map, an activity that justified the promotion of the “Calella Film Office”, aimed at addressing any initiative aimed at to turn the city into a set.
We find the origins of this long local audiovisual tradition in the constant and selfless work of a good group of people from Calella, gathered in the environment of “Foto-Film Calella” who, fleeing conformism, have dedicated time, effort and dedication to create, maintain and grow a festival of international resonance.
It is precisely this push that has made a new edition of the Calella Image Festival, “Festimatge”, at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic is conditioning everything. Push and ability to adapt to the circumstances that have made this year, one of the most emblematic events of the Festival, the “International Film Meeting 9.5”, be held “online”, which represents a challenge unprecedented.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, THIS YEAR MORE THAN EVER, FOR YOUR COMMITMENT!
Mrs. Montserrat Candini, Mayor of Calella
