El triunfo and El cerco, ambassadors in Berlin

The industry in...

The Berlin International Film Festival is the top professional European film event through its European Film Market.165 companies from 37 different countries attend each year to sell their new products or find co-producers for their projects in portfolio. These included Catalan producers who were able to place two titles among the official Berlinale section and have shown eight more during the Market Screening sessions.

Hence, the feature film El triunfo, directed by Mireia Ros and produced by Castelao Films, Public Special Events and Canónigo Films, was shown in the official Panorama section. The film covers the conflicts of street gangs as a framework to introduce the tragic search of a son to discover the circumstances of the disappearance of his father. Set in the 80s, the film stars Juan Diego, Ángela Molina and Antonio Fernández Montoya "Farru". Also presented in Panorama as a documentary short was El cerco, directed by Ricardo Íscar and Nacho Martín and co-produced by El Centre d'Estudis Cinematogràfics de Catalunya and Parallel 40. This story, which covers the fishing of tuna using the traditional purse net technique, was awarded the prize for the Best European Short at the festival, also being classified for the European Academy awards.
