The Tarragona Theatre in the city of the same name will serve as the main venue for the in-person functions being organised by REC Tarragona, a festival that gets under way today, 2 December, and which will continue unspooling until 8 December, thus celebrating its 20th edition in its regular slot in the calendar. However, its virtual, online screenings already began a few days prior, on the filmin platform, and will continue until 16 December. The gathering is showing some invigorating titles that are sure to delight film buffs: it will open with Josep [+leggi anche:

, the animated flick by Aurel, co-produced by French, Belgian and Spanish companies. But professionals in search of films in development won’t be disappointed either, as the Primer Test section – which previously launched its seventh call – will take place on 3 and 4 December in the Casa Joan Miret. In the latter strand, seven films currently in post-production will be presented, ready to receive guidance from distributors, programmers and sales agents (both in person and online) so that they may be completed successfully and build the strongest possible foundations before they set foot in the film market.

 by Ainhoa Rodríguez, which combines fiction and documentary as it talks about deserted parts of Spain (see the news); Santa Bárbara by Anaïs Pareto, about the reunion between a Bolivian immigrant and her troublesome son after more than a decade of living apart; and SÓS by Nicolás Martínez, a story of three emigrants, and their feelings of uprootedness and solitude.

In the rest of the programme (which boasts no fewer than 21 premieres) standing out particularly, as always, is the Opera Prima section, which, as its name suggests, offers a batch of the best feature debuts by various filmmakers. The most prominent among these are Les dues nits d’Ahir, a film about grief helmed by two students from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Gerard Vidal and Pau Cruanyes (Spain); Mogul Mowgli [+leggi anche:

Last of all, it’s worth highlighting that REC Tarragona and Filmin have programmed REC 20_20, a channel that is reshowing some of the films that have screened at the gathering over the last few years: movies that proved popular with the critics and the audience alike, and which, for some inexplicable reason, have never been released on the commercial cinema circuit in Spain.
