Voices from Holland, Finland and Galicia speak about cinema tomorrow at FICBUEU

FICBUEU

I The director Hanna Hovitie, the scriptwriter Nena van Driel and the filmmaker Félix Brixel will meet after the screening of their short films in the «Official Selection»

I Cadena SER’s «El Cine de LoQueYoTeDiga», a reference podcast in film information for more than 30 years, will be recorded live and with an audience from the Festival’s venue

BUEU. PONTEVEDRA. 12.08.2023. The voices of three filmmakers with films competing in the «Official Selection» of the FICBUEU will meet tomorrow, from 21.00 hours, in a colloquium in which they will talk about film creation. The meeting, organised by the Festival Internacional de Cinema de Bueu, will be held after the screening of their short films and will allow the audience to delve into their films and their creative process.

Two of the filmmakers come from Northern Europe. One of them is the Finnish Hanna Hovitie, director and screenwriter of Square the Circle, a visually innovative comedy – framed in a circle instead of the usual filmic square– that is self-critical about infinity, space and procrastination in a unique tribute to those people who feel they don’t belong. She will be accompanied in the colloquium by the Dutch Nena van Driel, author of the screenplay of two of the films in competition at the festival: the one to be screened tomorrow, Magma, by Luca Meisters, the story of a 9-year-old girl who finds it difficult to recognise the new reality of her father’s recent disability, and Ma mère et moi, the emotional car journey of a daughter and her mother filmed by Emma Branderhorst, also winner of the FICBUEU Audience Award last year with her short film Spotless.

Hovitie and Van Driel will talk with Félix Brixel, a Galician university professor and filmmaker who is presenting his first professional short film at FICBUEU. Ulises, the story of a man with a severe psychomotor disorder who is cared for by his brother and who one day decides to bury himself alive, was nominated at the Malaga Festival and won the awards for best cinematography and best direction at the Cans Festival.

The «Cinema and Radio» section will also continue tomorrow. The FICBUEU audience will be able to attend the live recording of an episode of the podcast «El Cine de LoQueYoTeDiga», broadcasted by Cadena SER, from 18.00. Directed by Nacho Gonzalo, the programme has been one of the leading radio broadcasters of film information in Spain for more than thirty years, always combining rigorousness and entertainment. In Bueu, Gonzalo will talk about the audiovisual sector and the festival programme. Admission is free.
