Cinema Jove takes the pulse to present times through the subjects treated in the Web Series section. This edition, programmed for days 5th and 6th of December at Sala 7 of Edificio Rialto, will include 14 projects that will compete in Official Selection, and one of them will get the Moon of Valencia to Best Web Series and Audience Award.
Those are proposals diverse in their genres and their nationality: there are films from Luxembourg, Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Switzerland, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Argentina and Spain. Spectators will be able to choose between drama (‘Swipe’, ‘Shakespeare Republic’), thriller (‘Over and Out’), crime stories(‘W’), comedy (‘Cartas a mi ex’, ‘Pantoufles’), documentary (‘Section, Marche!’) and science fiction (‘Otherside’,’Alisa’).
Apart from the series to contest, we will screen a group of Valencian proposals shot during the days of confinement. We have considered relevant to show the capacity of audiovisual creators to get going in this harsh times, and, above all, how most of them have used the web series format. The films are: ‘Diari de la quarentena‘, a daily docu-reality by comedian Eugeni Alemany, who eased the mood of confinement through his social networks; the comedic drama ‘Extra Life’, that relied on classic figures of Valencian theatre, such as Pilar Martínez, Juan Carlos Garés or Leo de Bari; ‘El amor en tiempos del corona’, where Sergio Villanueva ask himself whether love isn’t other type of virus; finally, ‘Cancelled’ is a half-fiction by Australian director Luke Eve about the cancelation of his own wedding, along with the confinement with his fiancé and his mother.
