The 3rd Exhibition of short films directed by women arrives this Saturday, March 6, at 7 pm, in the Joan Cererols Auditorium of the Cultural Center. Organized by the association Devil’s Cinema and the Feminist Collective of Martorell, with the support of the Department of Culture, is part of the commemoration of the International Women’s Day. Admission is free, but prior reservation is required at entrades.martorell.cat.
As in previous editions of the contest, there has been “a heterogeneous selection of shorts on different topics and genres: fiction, documentary, fantasy, drama and science fiction, thus celebrating the diversity of filmmaking made by women,” says Anna Lati, member of Devil’s Cinema.
“More and more women have the role of director in the world of cinema, but historically they have done other tasks. In order to change the trend and give visibility to the work of women in management, it is important to hold these types of events, ”she says.
After the screenings, says Lati, “there will be a discussion with the directors to talk and know the details of their work.” In addition, for the second year, “the Guillemette Huerre Prize will be awarded by the Catalan Federation of Film Clubs and the Friends of Miquel Porter i Moix association”.
Huerre was a philologist, translator and musician. Bretona born in Asnières (France) in 1928 and died in Barcelona in 1998. Life partner of Miquel Porter i Moix, with whom she founded, in 1964, and managed for a few years, the first children’s film club in Catalonia.
The jury will be made up of Mireia Iniesta of the Cineclub 39 Escalons de Manacor, Lourdes Feixa of the Cineclub BEC (Barcelona Espai de Cinema) and a member of the Cinema del Diable association.
