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.

In the Official Section for feature films, which, according to the gathering’s organisers, “rummages around in the open wounds of modern-day society” (as exemplified by online fake news, cyber-bullying, suicide among young people, the blaming of rape victims and the surge in extremism among teens), the strong presence of European films is immediately noticeable. One particular highlight is the world premiere of an independent movie shot in Valencia: #Seguidores, the second film by Iván Fernández de Córdoba (Cruzando el sentido), who this time addresses the paradox of the widespread lack of communication in today’s era of hypercommunication.
