The REC Festival kicks off today, 1 December, and will continue until the 8th, this year celebrating its 21st edition. Apart from its usual sections – standing out among which is the one dedicated to feature debuts – the Primer Test section (which has now reached its eighth iteration) will take place on 3 and 4 December, to the delight of professionals in search of films in development. It will present eight films in post-production, which will benefit from advice from distributors, programmers and sales agents.

Finally, between 1 and 12 December, the online programme of the 21st REC will be available to enjoy via the festival’s portal on Filmin. “We are offering movies that strike up a dialogue with the features that can be seen in person in Tarragona, and which exemplify the track record of the festival in its search for the very best international feature debuts, and also in its selection of timely topics that allow us to reflect on the present,” explained the gathering’s artistic director, Xavier García Puerto.
