SITGES
4th to 14th October
International Film Festival of Catalonia

SITGES International Film Festival of Catalonia is the number one fantasy film festival in the world and represents, at the same time, the cultural expression with the most media impact in Catalonia. With a solid experience, the Sitges Festival is a stimulating universe of encounters, exhibitions, presentations and screenings of fantasy films from all over the world.
 


Born in 1968 as the 1st International Week of Fantasy and Horror Movies, today the Festival is an essential rendezvous for movie lovers and audiences eager to come into contact with new tendencies and technologies applied to film and the audiovisual world.

Sitges’ status as the number one fantasy film festival in the world allows it to receive visits from top-level movie stars, directors and producers like Quentin Tarantino, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, Ralph Fiennes, Cameron Diaz, Viggo Mortensen, Sarah Michelle Gellar, John Landis, Dino de Laurentii, Takashi Miike, Wim Wenders, Tony Curtis, David Cronenberg, Vanessa Redgrave, Brad Dourif, John McNaughton, Peter Greenaway, John Woo, Park Chan-wook, Johnnie To, Paul Naschy, Ray Liotta, Jon Voight, Sam Raimi, Roger Corman, Mira Sorvino, Santiago Segura, Narciso Ibáñez Serrador, Guillermo del Toro, Kim Ki Duk, Álex de la Iglesia and Aitana Sánchez Gijón, among others from the long list of people who, year after year, are a media attraction.

The Festival is governed by a Foundation, made up of representatives from the Sitges Town Council, the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalonia’s autonomous government) and other institutions, associations and public and private companies.
 


Most of its resources come from the sponsors, companies and collaborating institutions that consider their alliance to the Festival to be an excellent platform for widening their scope and branding.
Every year Sitges hosts the Catalonia International Film Festival, showing a wide range of films from around the world. These include both releases from the previous year and old classics, with various awards given to the best films.
The most important international film event in Catalonia, the festival developed out of a fantasy and horror festival started in 1968. Today it is divided into various themes, from fantasy, animation and retrospectives to Catalonian and alternative films. It presents several awards, including the Méliès d'Or for the best fantasy film. The full programme can be found on the festival website as soon as it is released.

The films are shown at venues around Sitges, a pretty resort town half an hour by train or car from Barcelona
