  • The presentation will be completed with the screening of the 2019 awarded short film ‘L’heure de l’ours’

After the postponement of the Festival in June because of the impact of the COVID-19, the 35th edition of Cinema Jove will be held from the 5th to the 9th of December at the city of Valencia. The International Cinema Festival of the Institut Valencià de Cultura, which normally coincided with the beginning of the summer, resumes its activity this late fall following all the sanitary requirements.

“As a promoter of a festival, I have experienced contradictory feelings lately: opposing the excitement and the joy of Cinema Jove taking place and our program being shown to the public, I feel the uncertainty. Still, once the new dates have been confirmed and the team has started to work, optimism gains territory” comments the current director of the festival, Carlos Madrid.

The main objective of the festival is to discover and support young talent, and this goal will also be followed this year through the Short Film and Web Series Official sections. This edition will include the screening of out-of-contest feature films, which, together with a selection of special screenings, will complete the program.

“The program and the capacity have been reduced, all in order to guarantee the safety of the audience at all times. However, the enthusiasm to celebrate this edition remains intact”, highlights Carlos Madrid.

Next November the 4th there will be a presentation of this edition’s poster, signed by designer and artist Marta Pina, at La Mutant. The event will start at 7.30 pm and there will be a limit of 110 guests.

The work of Marta Pina has contributed a whole range of possibilities to play with the festival’s graphic image. This design emphasizes the importance of movement within the static pieces in order to create different formats, regardless of whether the design is found on social networks or urban posters.

Carlos Madrid will interview the author of the poster live, who will speak in detail about her inspiration and the techniques used. After that, the awarded animation short film ‘L’heure de l’0urs’, by Agnès Patron, will be screened.
