The BCN Film Fest focuses on popular films for the general public with special attention to those related to the world of literature and history. This event aims to establish a close relationship with the cultural and popular character of the festival of Sant Jordi, the most emblematic of Barcelona. In keeping with this philosophy, the program of the Official Section is mainly dedicated to adaptations of literary works, productions with a historical background and biographical films about great personalities.

About the 2024 edition of the BCN Film Fest

The BCN FILM FEST 2024 is presented with a diverse and quality program that balances both national and international cinema. From April 18 to 26, the Verdi Cinemas of Barcelona, as the main venue, will be the epicenter of this festival that promises to surprise lovers of the seventh art. The eighth edition of the BCN FILM FEST, which will screen 69 titles distributed in 8 sections, stands out for its wide presence of Catalan and Spanish productions.

The festival will open its doors with "Casa en Flames" by Dani de la Orden, a comedy-drama in Catalan that reveals the darkest secrets of a family over a weekend. This film, starring Emma Vilarasau and Enric Auquer, promises to captivate the public with its genuine narrative.

One of the most anticipated novelties of this edition's festival is "Hit man" by Richard Linklater, a comedy acclaimed at the Venice Film Festival, which will close the festival and will be preceded by the presentation of the Honor Award to Linklater himself.

In addition, the program includes films such as "Memory", a love story with Jessica Chastain and Peter Sarsgaard, and "Daaaaaalí!" by Quentin Dupieux, a tribute to the great master of surrealism. Also added are titles such as "Maya's Destiny" and "Irene's Promise", among others, which promise to offer an enriching and diverse cinematographic experience.

With the presence of prominent international figures such as Meg Ryan, Vincent Perez and Paolla Cortellesi, as well as the screening of films of various genres in sections such as Cinema amb Gràcia, Zona Oberta and Art al Cinema, the BCN FILM FEST 2024 is presented as an essential event for film lovers in Barcelona and beyond.
