The 33rd edition of Cinema Jove – Valencia International Film Festival, organised by the Valencian Institute of Culture (IVAC) and headed up by Carlos Madrid, will unspool between 22 and 29 June. Once again, it will be presenting a programme of features, web series and short films all directed by filmmakers under the age of 40.
