Film is also very much at the heart of Temporada Alta, with pre-releases at the Cinema Truffaut in Girona, and a wide range of film projects complementing the Festival programme.
Short films at Temporada Alta
Temporada Alta short promotional videos have been awarded various prizes for audiovisual design and communication: The Grand Laus Award (L’incendi, 2018; The Pleasure Island, 2017) and the Laus d’Or Award (Tragèdia, el cant de la cabra, 2015).
This fact is symptomatic of the purpose which lies behind these works. They are not mere advertising spots, but artistic works with the hallmarks of their creators.
Film and the Performing arts
In spite of being predominantly a performing arts festival, film has been establishing its presence in recent years, with a section entirely of its own. At Temporada Alta we want to build new bridges of dialogue between the languages of the performing arts and film, and to put these disciplines in contact with each other through several initiatives: JamesonNotodofilmfest, The One Project … The Film and the Performing Arts cycle is part of the Temporada Alta programme and aims to create a fusion between the two languages, by showing films which are related to the performing arts.
The One Project
Temporada Alta and Nanouk Films are the driving force behind The One Project, a project which brings together film and the performing arts.
The One Project nominates an artist from the world of the performing arts and poses them a challenge: to make a film (in many cases, for the first time). The project involves the making of a short film aimed at a wide audience, adapted to specific guidelines.
Temporada Alta and The JamesonNotodofilmfest International Film Festival joined forces in 2016 to convene the Temporada Alta Award: Film and the Performing Arts. A prize which rewards works which explore the dialogue between film and the performing arts. The ability to establish meeting points between the languages of the performing arts and film is what is primarily evaluated.
With this award we aim to facilitate the access of new talent to the audiovisual world. JamesonNotodofilmfest was founded in 2001, with the aim of offering support to young audiovisual creators via the Internet, and thus break down the barriers between film production and distribution.
