The Catalan Audiovisual Media Corporation (CCMA) and Badalona Comunicació have signed a collaboration agreement to promote and publicise the activities organised within the framework of the FILMETS Badalona Film Festival, which will take place between the 22nd and the 31st of October. The agreement aims to promote the audiovisual industry’s short film genre.

Núria Llorach, acting Chair of the CCMA, and Josep Viñeta Balsells, CEO of Badalona Comunicació, signed the collaboration agreement to publicise and promote the 47th edition of the FILMETS Badalona Film Festival.

The motto of the 47th edition of FILMETS is “Això no va per llarg‘’ (“Not long to go”) a double-entendre that makes clear reference to the fact that, thanks to mass vaccination, we are now in the final stages of the battle against COVID-19, and that FILMETS is a competitive festival for short films rather than feature films.

The 2021 edition will once again have a hybrid format similar to last year, but with the introduction of many more live audience sessions at the Zorrilla Theatre in Badalona, the Institut français in Barcelona, and the Can Castellet cinemas in Sant Boi de Llobregat. This year also sees FILMETS return to Sant Boi following the reopening of the Can Castellet cinemas, which were closed due to the pandemic last year. In addition to the theatre screenings, all the films in competition at the festival can be seen for free on the festival’s website www.festivalfilmets.cat.

The CCMA’s media outlets will use their different programmes and spaces to provide extensive coverage of the activities associated with the next edition of the FILMETS Badalona Film Festival. Furthermore, coinciding with the festival’s screenings, some Catalunya Ràdio programmes will run various participatory experiences and activities for spectators and listeners.

The agreement between the CCMA and Badalona Comunicació forms part of the CCMA’s mission to promote and disseminate culture and its commitment to guaranteeing coverage for major cultural events and the most important festivals in Catalonia by collaborating with the institutions working to foster culture, education, creativity and innovation.
