Americana 2019 | Festival de Cinema Independent


The American Festival will celebrate its sixth edition from March 5 to 10, 2019 at the Girona Cinemas in Barcelona and at the Zumzeig Cinemas. The Americana is an indispensable festival in which you can watch movies that usually do not reach our screens. The opening will be on Tuesday, March 5 in the Phenomena movie theater with the winning film of the Sundance festival of 2018, "The Miseducation of Cameron Post".

The screenings will be divided into four sections, Americana TOPS, with some of the most awarded or expected films in the US indie scene, Americana NEXT where new directors with a future projection will be given, Americana DOCS, documentary section and Americana SHORTS, the short film section. In addition the festival has the section Americana KIDS, a workshop in which children can learn to make a movie while playing (this activity takes place in La Casa del Cinema, Plaza Joanic 6, as well as workshops and seminars for the adult public).

In this edition of 2019 the American Festival will dedicate a retrospective to the Zellner brothers in the SHORTS section and the Filmoteca de Catalunya between the 6th and the 14th of March.

The Lost Sessions

This year's edition has as a novelty the section Lost Sessions, where they will screen lost or forgotten titles that the organizers of the festival consider deserve to be recovered. The film that will inaugurate this section will be "The Golden Boat" by the prestigious Chilean director Raoul Ruiz who joined, in full effervescence of the indie in New York, with people like Jim Jarmush or Barbet Schroeder, who have small roles in the film.

All sessions marked as Movistar + in the program are free.
