Zinebi, Bilbao International Documentary and Short Film Festival kicks off its 63rd edition this Friday 12 November, which will continue unspooling until the 19th. In the words of the festival director, Vanessa Fernández, over the course of one week, it will introduce the public to “films that are difficult to access through conventional channels. Together with this, it will invite viewers to reflect on the form and content on offer in these works.” In total, 123 titles are on the programme, 45 of which were produced in the Basque Country (comprising 34 shorts and 11 features), more than half of which will be national premieres.

On Thursday 18th, Uribe will also be in attendance for a chat and to present a preview screening of his upcoming film Llegaron de noche (2022).

In keeping with the spirit of the most recent editions, at which Zinebi left room for films directed by female filmmakers from all around the world, this year, in conjunction with the Mexican Film Institute (IMCINE), the festival is programming the “Focus: Mexico, Woman and Originary Cinemas” section. In this strand, films helmed by Mexican women directors will have their Basque premieres, and they include the suggestive Koltavanej by Concepción Suárez Aguilar, Time and the Seashell by Itandehui Jansen, Me parezco tanto a ti and Tío Yim, both of the latter by Luna Marán.

Once again, owing to the pandemic, the festival will continue putting its faith in a hybrid version – in other words, screenings will happen in person as well as via the Filmin platform, the festival’s online HQ.
