British Council is honoured to participate in the 45th edition of FILMETS Badalona Film Festival where the United Kingdom is the guest country.

BAFTA Shorts 2019: British Council Spain is partnering for a seventh time with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) to showcase the short film nominees as part of our remit to promote the best of British short filmmaking internationally. The directors and producers we will have the pleasure to welcome to Badalona will explain their creation process in this challenging format.

Flare Films: We will also have the chance to watch “Flare Films” a programme of nine recent short films from the UK that have all been shown at BFI Flare, London's LGBT Film Festival. The programme includes drama, documentary, poetry and dance. The films explore and celebrate a range of LGBT experience, but essentially, they are all about finding out - and standing up for - who you are.

And in the session “Geniuses UK” we can watch classics including “Aventure Malgache” by Alfred Hitchcock; “Boy and Bicycle” by Ridley Scott and “The London Story” by Sally Potter.
