The Barcelona-Sant Jordi International Film Festival (BCN FILM FEST) proposes a selection of films from the international scene related in a broad sense to literature and / or history. Following this criterion, the programming of the Official Section is dedicated, preferably, to adaptations of literary works, productions with a historical background and biographical films about relevant personalities.
POPULAR AND DIVULGATIVE VOCATION
The BCN FILM FEST aspires to maintain a close link with the cultural and popular character of the emblematic Sant Jordi festival, the celebration coincides with the dates of the contest.
The idea is to offer a festival close to an audience interested in cinema and culture in general, where proposals with artistic aspirations and popular proposals have room, all of them with a common denominator: quality.
BCN FILM FEST believes in the pedagogical possibilities of cinema and, therefore, a prominent part of its programming is aimed at schools, with the intention that teachers and students use films as a didactic resource to better study certain subjects
