Standing out among the activities that will take place there are the First Professional Conferences on Marketing Strategies for Independent Film (organised in conjunction with the Creative Europe Media Desk Catalonia, the SGAE Foundation, SDE and Catalán Films) and the first Campus D’A, a place where future film critics are nurtured.

Three awards will be handed out: the Talents Award – which comes with €6,000 – for which the jury comprises Lluís Miñarro, Neus Ballús, Montse Triolla and José Luis Losa (director of the Cineuropa Festival in Santiago de Compostela), the Critics’ Award and the Audience Award. Eden, by Mia Hansen-Love, is the movie that will be given the honour of bringing these ten days of bold, modern arthouse cinema to a close.
