The FICBUEU Monographs arrive at the Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente de Elche


Severiano Casalderrey presents the two essays published to date at one of the most popular festivals on the peninsula.

After the colloquium, the programming included a screening of some of the best Galician shorts that passed through the FICBUEU.

The FICBUEU was present during the celebration of the 45th Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente de Elche as a guest festival. The representative was Severiano Casalderrey, author of the Monographs and one of the FICBUEU programming managers, who brought the short format to Alicante on July 7, one day before the start of the festival that will end on the 22nd of the same month.

Casalderrey had the opportunity to present the FICBUEU Monographs project in an interesting colloquium that began at 8:00 p.m. and ended with the screening of some of the most outstanding Galician short films that have passed through the FICBUEU, such as ‘Homeless Home’ by Alberto Vázquez, ‘Carne’ by Camila Kater, ‘Augas Abisais’ by Xacio Baño, ‘Xoves de Comadres’ by Noemi Chantada and ‘Matria’ by Álvaro Gago.

During the conference, the situation and context of Galician cinema were discussed. In addition, various periods in the history of the short film were also discussed, especially the French Nouvelle Vague and the National Film Board of Canada, protagonists of the two books published to date.

The FICBUEU Monographs project was born in 2020 and is the result of all the selection and research work carried out for the FICBUEU Retrospective Section, for which it is necessary to carry out extensive documentation work, as well as to view a significant number of films.

In this 2022 edition, the ‘FICBUEU#3 Monograph’ will be presented, dedicated to the Institute of Researchers and Cinematographic Experiences (IIEC) and the later Official School of Cinematography (EOC), focusing for the first time on Spanish cinema and emphasizing the period from 1947 to 1976.

The first two books can be found in the FICBUEU online store for all those interested, while the third of them will be available after its official presentation.

FICBUEU and Juan XXIII Association record the short film ‘A fin do osíxeno’


Both institutions have been working on the movie since January through the film workshops of the FICBUEU Social Area.

The film will premiere on September 11 during the opening day of the festival.

The team from the Social Area of the FICBUEU and the Juan XXIII Association of Cangas, an occupational center for people with intellectual disabilities, recorded a short film as a result of long work in one of the film workshops, which began last January.

During these months, the users of the center learned everything related to the process of creating an audiovisual piece, starting from the creation of the story and the script and ending with the entire preparation and production process prior to filming.

Therefore, all that was needed was to put everything learned into practice during the filming. The session lasted approximately nine hours. Twenty people participated in it, among whom were well-known actresses and actors such as Mónica Caamaño or Lois Soaxe.

All the work has been carried out by members of the center from different towns in Pontevedra, such as Cangas, Moaña and Bueu, although they had the support of the Juan XXIII monitors and the FICBUEU team.

The environmental-themed fiction short film is entitled ‘A fin do osíxeno’ and was recorded in different locations, such as the Association’s own headquarters or the castle of the forest of Aldan.

The final result, still with a lot to work on in the editing and post-production section, will be premiered during the opening day of the Bueu International Film Festival, which will take place on September 11.

This is the second film of the 2021/22 academic year launched through the short film workshops of the FICBUEU Social Area, after the one made in conjunction with the Association Érguete from Vigo, in an initiative that seeks to bring cinema closer to groups and sectors further away from audiovisual creation.

Once premiered, the work can be seen on the festival’s YouTube channel, where most of the works carried out so far can be found.
