Cinema Jove – Film Festival in Valencia

In our day jobs, we run Criticker, a movie recommendation website. So the start of Valencia’s film festival, Cinema Jove, is extremely exciting for us.

The festival runs from June 21st-28th, and is considered to be Spain’s 5th most important. There are two competitions, feature-length and short films, with screenings at eight venues in the city. All of the full-length films in competition can be seen at the Teatro Principal, with other important venues being the Viveros Gardens and the Institut d’Francés.

The festival kicks off on Friday in the Viveros Gardens with one of last year’s most successful Spanish films: [REC].

Eeek! We saw the trailer online — instead of highlighting frightening scenes from the movie, it showed the audience’s reaction to them. It is one of the most exciting trailers I’ve ever seen.

With an eclectic array of classics, experimental films, terror, new Valencian talent and more, there is bound to be something for everyone. And with tickets priced at just €3 per film, attendance almost feels like an obligation. And you can go to 10 films for €15! Jesus, I love this city.
