    The five filmmakers of the third edition of Ikusmira Berriak explain their creative processes at the halfway point of the residence.

     

    The residencies of the third edition of Ikusmira Berriak, the programme providing support to audiovisual projects organised by Tabakalera-International Centre for Contemporary Culture and the San Sebastian Festival, with collaboration of the Filmoteca Vasca, and which is part of the legacy left by San Sebastian, European Capital of Culture 2016, began on August 21. Over the six weeks of the residency, filmmakers Maider Fernández Iriarte (San Sebastián, 1988), Helena Girón (Santiago de Compostela, 1988) and Samuel M. Delgado (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1987), Julia Pesce (Córdoba, Argentina, 1984) and Leo van Dijl (Kortrijk, Belgium, 1991) will develop the four selected projects in the Tabakalera Creators’ Space. To help them with the process, during the first four weeks a series of masterclasses have been organised, such as those given by producer Fernanda del Nido, founder of Setembro Cine, and filmmakers Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, the founders of Vento Films. In addition, each resident will have carte blanche to programme a film forming part of their movie references at Tabakalera.

     

    In the fifth week of their stay, coinciding with the start of the San Sebastian Festival, the participants will prepare a pitch, a concised presentation of the audiovisual project to international producers, sales agents and industry professionals potentially interested in co-producing and distributing their work. The presentations will take place in the frame of the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum, the meeting point for the industry professionals in the Festival. The residents will have a specific spot at San Telmo Museum, Forum’s venue, where they will have the opportunity to organise one-to-one meetings with accredited guests interested in their projects. Moreover, they will be able to participate in its activities as professionals and to attend the screenings of the Festival. Their stay will end, exactly, on October 1, the day after the Festival finishes.

  • KALEBEGIAK

    San Sebastian portrayed through the eyes of fifteen moviemakers. That’s the intention of Kalebegiak, a production involving the participation of  time-honoured filmmakers, professionals of recognised trajectory and others taking their first steps in the field. The resulting work will premiere in 2016 at the San Sebastian International Film Festival. Kalebegiak seeks to create an innovative relationship between cinema and San Sebastian other than their traditional connection of screenings and festivals. This new focus has the core objective of stimulating local filmmaking production alongside the Larrotxene  Cultural Centre, specialising in audiovisual production.

    Kalebegiak is a multidisciplinary project. Musikene will participate in composing the soundtrack and  the University of the Basque Country Faculty of Translation and Interpretation will provide the subtitles to guarantee linguistic diversity. The overwhelming  number of filmmakers existing in a region as small as ours deserves particular reflection in the ECoC programme.

  • TO SAY GOODBYE

      “To Say Goodbye” a film project by REC GRABAKETA ESTUDIOA and IZAR Films has been selected for the Spanish Film Festival of London, where it will have its UK Premiere on 30th September at Lumiere Cinemas. You can buy tickets in this page: www.londonspanishfilmfestival.com/2013-festival/2013_films/to-say-goodbye.html

    This animated documentary, which is being post-produced for the last few weeks at REC who are also the co-producers, is a powerful and inspirational film about the loss of childhood, the stripping away of identity and, ultimately, the hope of reconciliation.

    Using innovative animation, the film tells the story of the 4000 Basque children evacuated to the United Kingdom in 1937. Forced to bid a hurried farewell to their parents, these children were told they would only be in the UK for three months. 75 years later, some are still there, forever separated from their parents and their homeland, their families torn apart and their childhood destroyed by a brutal and bloody conflict. 

    Through the voices of 14 of these children, now in their 80s & 90s, we reveal this tragic episode in history in a stunning animated documentary that is profound, unexpected and uplifting.

    The Director Matt Richards and the Producer Izaskun Arandia have worked with Lead Animator Ian Harrold for the creation of 3D images that are combined with real archive footage and first hand account of those children who suffered the fatal consequences of the Spanish Civil War.
