Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

The Atlàntida Film Fest (see the news), Europe’s biggest online film festival, organised by the Spanish platform and distributor Filmin, is expanding its international edition and is unspooling in Serbia, Greece, Albania, Romania, Bulgaria and Portugal throughout December. After racking up ten years’ experience and enjoying the exponential growth of both its physical edition on Majorca and its online one (with more than 550,000 viewers at the most recent iteration), the gathering is making the leap to new territories thanks to the involvement of the European Union’s Creative Europe – MEDIA programme. Therefore, it will be available on the Cinesquare and Filmin Portugal platforms from 1-31 December. Subscribers will be able to access the Official Section – which includes eight standout titles from the most recent edition of the Atlàntida Film Fest – and the Catalan Focus, where nine of this year’s most successful Catalonian productions (which are as yet unreleased in those six countries) will get some much-needed international exposure.
