The short films of the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas and the Escuela Oficial de Cinematografía star in FICBUEU MONOGRAPH #3

FICBUEU

The new monograph analyzes the works made in Spanish film schools, on which the Retrospective Section of this 2022 is also based

The Bueu International Film Festival inaugurated the Retrospective Section in 2019, a section dedicated to the most important milestones in the history of short-form cinema through their works. As a result of all the documentation work put in place to create this category, the FICBUEU Monographs project would be born, which are compilation publications parallel to the content of the section.

In the first year, the influence of the Nouvelle Vague and its importance in the subsequent development of this cinematographic trend was analyzed, while last year the focus was on the largest public production company in the world, the National Film Board of Canada, with the participation of Marc Bertrand, one of its producers, at the festival.

In this 15th edition, both the FICBUEU 2022 Retrospective Section and Monograph #3 will focus on Spain, analyzing the pieces made at the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas and at the Escuela Oficial de Cinematografía between 1947 and 1976, being one of the seeds of current Spanish cinema by giving way to the various filmmakers who reformulated the industry during those years.

Interested parties will be able to attend the screenings of the Retrospective Section free of charge from Monday 12 to Thursday 15 at 5:00 p.m., previously withdrawing the invitation at the box office. With the ticket for these sessions, a copy of the FICBUEU Monograph #3 will be given as a gift.

The book, entitled “The role of the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas and Escuela Oficial de Cinematografía professional practices in the creation of the new spanish cinema (1947-1956)”, will also be presented by its author, Severiano Casalderrey, during this edition of the FICBUEU. It will be on Saturday 17 at 11 am at the Meeting Point.

The work is published in Galician and English and has the support of the General Secretariat for Language Policy of the Xunta de Galicia since the beginning of this project. Currently, the monographs can be found in public libraries and in various institutions and schools related to cinema. In addition, the monographs are also available for purchase in the FICBUEU online store and during the festival in the physical store.

FICBUEU and the Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank organize a food collection during the festival

FICBUEU

You can donate during the two weeks that the event will last.

The Bueu International Film Festival and the Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank announce a new collaboration to carry out a food collection for the 15th edition, which will take place from September 11 to 24.

Different non-perishable products can be donated during the two weeks of the festival at the Centro Social del Mar, the main venue of the event, at the same time as the scheduled activities.

The items that are most often needed are milk, cocoa, cookies, oil and all kinds of preserves, although any donation is welcome. Another class of foods that are very useful in this type of initiative are those that are easy to store, those with a high nutritional density or those that can be consumed without prior preparation, as long as they are healthy.

In this way, and as in past editions, the FICBUEU will try to collaborate in the fight to reduce social inequalities, in line with the values and ideas that identify the organization, continuing and even expanding the work carried out in previous years.

Informative poster extracted from the web midietacojea.com

In 2021, the year this collaboration began, the campaign was carried out only during the screenings of the Panorama Section. On this occasion, the organization extends the collection dates, including visits by schools during the week of the MiniFIC, with the intention of improving and increasing the number of food collected.

The Vigo-Pontevedra Food Bank is one of the 54 organizations that belong to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL), an entity with more than 20 years of experience that aims to fight against hunger, poverty and waste of food through its correct use and distribution, also contributing to improving the environment. Thanks to their work, products are distributed among more than 7,000 charities and more than one million people.

Six short films will compete for the Best Short Film from International Cinema Schools and Faculties at FICBUEU 2022

FICBUEU

It will be the third year in which the festival rewards this category.

The Bueu International Film Festival will award the best short film of the International Schools Section of 2022, in a category established in the programming since its creation in 2020.

Of the thousands of works received by FICBUEU for the Official Section, the festival team had to make a preliminary selection among those from international film schools in order to announce the six finalists for this edition. The final decision was made by the Schools Jury, made up of the writer and editor Olalla González, the pedagogue, teacher and researcher Álvaro Dosil, and the producer, film director and teacher Sergio Clavero, who decided from an outstanding selection of short films from different parts of the world.

Frame of the short film Fruto do vosso ventre

From the Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema of Portugal Fábio Silva presents Fruto do vosso ventre, which tells the story of a son who discovers his father’s old 8mm tapes and begins to uncover the reality about his parents and their lives.

The second finalist is the Singaporean Yi Yi by Giselle Lin from Lasalle College of Arts, which narrates the life of a mother trapped in the comfort of memory and mourning who has to face her pain when the time comes.

Mikai Geronimo and Josh O’Caoimh sign from Ireland’s National Film School at IADT Fall of the Ibis king, in which the antagonist of a dark opera becomes increasingly unsettled following the unlikely return of the former lead actor.

In Joy by Alexandra Brodski, from the NFTS school in the United Kingdom, we will be able to witness the life of Jacob, a young man in a juvenile detention regime desperate to return to the outside world, a situation that changes when he meets Joy, a 10-year-old girl mysteriously magnetic.

Another of the finalist works is An ostrich told me the world is fake and I think I believe it by the Australian Griffith Film School student Lachlan Pendragon. In this short film, a young telemarketer is confronted by a mysterious talking ostrich and realizes that the universe is a stop motion animation, which leads him to try to spread the discovery of it.

Frame of the short film Joy

The sixth nominee is the Swiss Es muss by Jumana Issa and Flavio Luca Marano, from the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, who will recount the complicated journey of Silvia, a girl who on the same day loses her role as soloist in her choir, is fired from her job and is fined by the police, sparking her silent resistance.

All the works will be screened during the second week of the festival, in a session that will take place on Monday 19 at 11 a.m. at the Centro Social del Mar, with free admission for all interested parties.

The winning short film of the International Schools Section will be announced on Monday, September 19 at 1:30 p.m., in an awards ceremony open to the public. The winner of the Image and Sound Schools and Faculties of Galicia Section will also be announced at this awards ceremony

It will be the third time that the FICBUEU will distribute this award. The winning works in previous years were the French Avant notre heure, by director and cinematographer Chloé Terren, who continues to work on similar projects, and the Finnish Hiljaisuus by Saara Hakkarainen, a winner at other festivals such as the Tampere Film Festival or the Santorini Film Festival.

Miguel de Lira will be the Galician Cinema Award of the FICBUEU 2022

FICBUEU

The actor, known for his career in cinema, television and theater, will receive the award and will be interviewed by the journalist and producer Gaspar Broullón.

The actor Miguel de Lira (Miguel Domingo García), who owes his artist name to his origins in the parish of Santa María de Lira, in the municipality of Carnota, will receive the 2022 FICBUEU Galician Cinema Award. An award created with the aim of recognize the trajectory and the work carried out in the Galician audiovisual industry by the actresses and actors of the community, joining winners in previous editions such as Alfonso Agra, Antonio Durán ‘Morris’, Mabel Rivera, Luis Zahera or Melania Cruz.

Her extensive career began during her university years, when she entered the theatrical world, founding in 1986 together with other colleagues the Chévere group, still in force today. In this group, distinguished with the National Theater Award in 2014, he developed as a director, actor and producer. Shortly after, in 1989, he would make the leap to television and cinema, making his debut in the comedy program on TVG Velaí… and in the film Urxa.

From that moment on, he combined performances on television, participating in series such as Mareas Vivas, Pepe o Inglés or Los Hombres de Paco, with others in cinema, acting in Entre bateas, Crebinsky or Eroski Paraíso. Even so, de Lira did not neglect other formats such as theater or short films, with both having an interesting number of works behind him.

Recently, his roles in feature films such as Cuñados by Toño López, Ons by Alfonso Zarazuza, Dhogs by Andrés Goteira or A esmorga by Ignacio Vilar stand out, as well as others in well-known series such as Vivir sin permiso or Matadero.

The more than twenty films in which he participated and innumerable works in other formats earned him up to six nominations for the Mestre Mateo, winning the award for Best Actor a total of three times. In this way, de Lira will increase his record with a Galician Cinema Award that recognizes his prolific career and his contribution and commitment to Galician society and culture.

The actor will participate in this 15th edition of the Bueu International Film Festival in an interesting interview with the journalist and producer Gaspar Broullón, with whom he will review the most notable moments of his career. This conversation will be available online after the festival through the new FICBUEU Channel.

The jury of the Schools Section will choose the winning short films of the FICBUEU 2022

FICBUEU

A total of 86 films from centers in Galicia were presented for the 15th edition of the festival, with a large number of pieces from Secondary Education.

The jury of the Schools Section of the 15th edition of the Bueu International Film Festival met today to select, from among the 15 finalist works, the three winners of the corresponding categories (Special, Early Childhood and Primary Education, Secondary Education and Schools of Image and Sound and Faculties), in addition to the winner in the International Schools section.

The Schools Jury for the present edition of the FICBUEU

After a first pre-selection by the FICBUEU team, which was in charge of choosing up to five pieces per category from among the 86 works received for the Galician Schools, now it will be the turn of the three people who make up this year’s Schools Jury, who has the final decision.

This jury, made up of the writer and editor Olalla González, the pedagogue, teacher and researcher specializing in cinema at USC Álvaro Dosil, and the producer, director of animated films and teacher Sergio Clavero, will be responsible for choosing the works winners who will be announced during the Galician Schools Gala, in which the Fundación Novas and Kalandraka collaborate.

A decision that will surely not be easy, taking into account that the number of works was similar to that received in previous years and that their quality and variety is more than remarkable. Almost half (42) correspond to Secondary Education centers, while in the case of Special, Infant and Primary Education and Image and Sound Schools and Faculties the number was similar (23 and 21, respectively).

These figures show not only the great participation and commitment of students and schools, but also the potential of audiovisual and cinema as a tool for work, learning and transmission of values, premises under which the MiniFIC was created. The finalist shorts are the following:

  • A coroa da raíña – CEIP Plurilingüe San Marcos (Abegondo)

  • Migrando – IES Praia Barraña (Boiro)
  • Non tes prezo – CPI Eusebio Lorenzo Baleirón (Dodro)
  • Psicología semanal – IES Terra de Trasancos (Narón)
  • Que van dicir de nós – CPI Alcalde Xosé Pichel (Coristanco)

Best Short Film of Image and Sound Schools and Faculties:

  • Algas negras – IES Audiovisual de Vigo

  • Separados por unha barreira – CIFP Imaxe e Son A Coruña
  • Versos post mortem – Facultade de Ciencias Sociais e da Comunicación (Universidade de Vigo)
  • 42º 47 ́ 38.9”N – 8º 30 ́ 15.8”O – Universidade de Vigo-Universidade de Santiago de Compostela

On the other hand, this jury will also be the one that will designate the Best Short Film of the International Schools Section, after the FICBUEU team chose the 6 best pieces sent in recent months. The finalists in this section are the following:

Fruto do vosso ventre – Fábio Silva (Portugal)
Yi Yi – Giselle Lin (Singapur)
Fall of the Ibis king – Mikai Geronimo, Josh O’Caoimh (Irlanda)
Joy – Alexandra Brodski (Reino Unido)
An ostrich told me the world is fake and I think I believe it – Lachlan Pendragon (Australia)

The winning short films in the categories of Secondary Education and Special, Early Childhood and Primary Education will be announced during the Galician Schools Gala, which will be held on September 23 at 11:30 am. On the other hand, the award-winning pieces of the International Schools and Galician Schools and Faculties Section will be announced during a ceremony that will take place on Monday, September 19 at 1:30 p.m. Both events will have free admission.

After the return to normality later the several years marked by the situation derived from the health crisis, the FICBUEU continues with the progression of past editions and presents a new format that goes beyond the festival, with the clear objective of adding value the projects carried out during the months before and after the event.

This is how the new structure of FICBUEU arose, which is based on the different actions carried out by the organization throughout the year: the short film festival, collaborations with festivals, associations and other entities, the Film Seminars and the future proyect of the residency of creation.

Programming and novelties of the 15th edition

The screening sessions will continue to be the main part of the short film festival, which will begin with the opening ceremony on September 11, where two pieces made with the Asociación Érguete of Vigo and the Asociación Juan XXIII of Cangas will premiere.

The program includes more than 100 short films and several talks with directors, in addition to other activities such as Carne Cruda, the Espazo Negativo podcast, the VII 5 Star Tapas Route, the V Short Film Market or the presentation of the FICBUEU#3 Monograph, entitled “The role of the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas and Escuela Oficial de Cinematografía professional practices in the creation of the new spanish cinema (1947-76)“.

In a second week, the MiniFIC will take place, which is the section dedicated to educational centers and youth, with a duration of five days, from Monday 19 to Friday 23.

During the first day, which will be open to the public, the projections of the Image and Sound Schools Sections and International Faculties and Schools will be held, with award ceremonies for the most outstanding short films in these areas.

These novelties come hand in hand with all the changes made by the FICBUEU throughout the year, such as the new image or the restructuring of the website, highlighting the new section of the FICBUEU Files, where we find a list of all the participating short films throughout the different editions.

Another novel initiative is the creation of the FICBUEU Channel, separated into the YouTube and Twitch accounts. In the first of them you can find videos of activities carried out by the organization throughout the year, as well as pieces related to the festival, such as interviews with various guests of this edition. On the other hand, in the Twitch channel various activities will be broadcast live.
