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