Novos Cinemas intends to be a meeting point for the exchange of ideas. Professionals of the cinema scene are welcome to come together, engage in open discussions and critically reflect upon the different aspects of the industry.
For our #Encontros section this year we have organized two sessions with the associations CREA and PROXECTA that will be devoted to discussing the creation phase of a film, film programming, and film literacy for young learners. We will also be hosting a round table where a number of representatives of the sector will deliver presentations on some of the most interesting programs for the development of film projects in Spain.
In an open meeting with the audience, the Spanish emerging filmmakers Helena Girón and Samuel Delgado will share with us the keys to their creative process.
// ENCONTROS SAMUEL DELGADO and HELENA GIRON
12 December | 11:00h. a 12:00h. | Casa das Campás
In an open meeting with the audience, Helena Girón and Samuel Delgado will explain in detail their unique working method, as well as the ideas, decisions, and intentions that underpin their first feature film Eles transportan a morte. The feature, now in post-production phase, was shot in different landscapes of the Galician shore, and narrates the story of three men sentenced to death. To elude their punishment, they enroll in Christopher Columbus’ expedition. After stealing the sail of the Santa María, they get away with it and try to escape their chasers in an unknown island.

For the commemoration of Cinegalicia’s 30th anniversary this year will pay tribute to Continental, Sempre Xonxa, and Urxa –three milestones in the history of Galician cinema– we have brought together a group of representatives of Galicia’s contemporary cultural and film scene that are on the verge of turning 30, too. We have invited them to join us and contribute to the celebration in an informal, unprejudiced way. Don’t forget to stop by and discover the art of local creators from a number of disciplines: video, cultural criticism and journalism, music, and design.
Para celebrarlo en Novos Cinemas invitamos a los compostelanos Oh! Ayatollah a amenizar con su pop fulgurante una sesión vermú.
