Reviving the memory of MUCES, the Segovia Film Festival (organised and sponsored by the City Council of Segovia’s Cultural Board), the event is continues its journey as SÉ_CINE, in a 16th edition that turns the spotlight onto an open, plural Europe as a meeting place. This year the festival has expanded to cover a wide range of locations and cultures, also including films from Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Under this premise, the city will be receiving fans of the Seventh Art from 16 to 22 November, bringing together spectators and professionals for a selection of 43 films intended to “forge ties and pathways with a view to understanding the reality of the human being and building an open-minded society based on dialogue and tolerance,” said mayoress Clara Martin.

The programme has been drawn up by Manuel Asín - Film Coordinator at Madrid’s Círculo de Bellas Artes - and the film director, screenwriter and critic Pablo Garcia Canga. “These are must-see films for a Segovia that is open - and connected - to the rest of the world,” explained Culture Councillor Alberto Espinar. Many of the pieces have not yet been, or a shortly due to be commercially released in Spain, endorsed by international awards and reviews.
