El Cinemamed se pasa a internet
Fortuna, de Nicolangelo Gelormini

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

Having hoped that this year’s edition might still unspool in person, in the vein of the Namur International Francophone Film Festival (read our news) and Film Fest Gent (news), not least because this 20th edition marks a change in the event’s identity, in name but also in logo, the Brussels Mediterranean Film Festival - Cinemamed has had to make peace with moving part of its programme online, which will be accessible between the original dates of 26 November - 5 December. Twenty-six features films, both works of fiction and documentaries, and thirteen shorts are set to punctuate this unprecedented edition, whisking viewers on a journey through Spain to Turkey, travelling via Palestine and Serbia.

In this utterly unique year, where solidarity is undeniably of the essence, the festival has chosen to showcase works which explore "the ties which bind us together" and which highlight the importance of human relationships, whether familial, romantic or developed during chance encounters. 

Once again, the festival will spotlight Mediterranean films which have dazzled in international festivals, such as Italian director Nicolangelo Gelormini’s very recent Fortuna – The Girl and The Giants [+lee también:

All of the selected titles will be broadcast on the Belgian VOD platform Sooner, at an eminently affordable cost of €6 per feature film and €2 for the opening film. The event will also host live debates with several of the filmmakers selected for this year’s edition, as well as offering two family screenings. And whilst there might not be a feature film competition to look forward to this year, there will definitely be a contest – the first ever, as far as Cinemamed is concerned - for the 13 short films gracing the showcase. They’ll be battling it out for the Audience Award, as well as the Young Jury Award.
