El Festivalito.International Digital Film Festival
Santa Cruz de la Palma
26th July to 31st July 2010 Island of La Palma
The International Digital Film Festival has been held on the Island of La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain since 2001. It is known as El Festivalito, and is a pioneering event in Europe, dedicated to showing digitally filmed productions. “El Festivalito” is a film festival for all those who opt, not only for a new type of cinematographic contest, but also for a new way of making, seeing and understanding cinema.
In each edition, the various activities are programmed with the aim of reliving Van Gogh´s dream: screenings on the beach, in the volcano, in the theatre, in cinemas, in senior citizens´ centres, in high schools, the shooting of feature films and shorts, workshops, debate forums and inauguration and closing ceremonies.
Thanks to its festival agenda, “El Festivalito” is more than just your average cinema festival and, since its first edition, it has become a campsite and laboratory for cinematographic creation.
It is held each year in the Canary Islands, on the island of La Palma. This week spent among people, in a happy, no-red-carpet, carefree environment, makes “El Festivalito” a unique experience not to be missed.
The best films recorded digitally from the five continents are shown here, with the film projections taking place inside a volcano. One of the features of this event is that any participant can present a short during the festival. The only condition is that it must use digital format.
