Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya

  • Film, Fantasy

Time Out says

Inaugurated 49 years ago as the world's first film festival dedicated to the fantastic genreie, fantasy, horror, sci-fi and cult today it has become the region's biggest celebration of the moving image. The picturesque seaside town of Sitges, which is some 30 minutes down the coast from Barcelona, hosts hundreds of films from around the globe, providing movie fans with around ten days of screenings of all types, from animation to rom-com via slasher and gangster. The festival has also adapted to the times, with an ever-growing section dedicated to TV series, and a feature on films made on mobile phones (aptly named ‘Phonetastic'). Last year it launched Sitges Pitchbox, giving screenwriters and directors the chance to pitch to potential producers, and perhaps see their creations up on a Sitges screen some time soon.
