D’A – Film Festival Barcelona


The D'A Film Festival Barcelona 2021 reaches its eleventh edition with the best auteur cinema produced in the world: a combination of new and established directors, films that have triumphed in other international festivals and with attention directed towards new ones trends in filmmaking.

This year's edition of D’A will be a hybrid edition that will combine face-to-face screenings (CCCB, Renoir Floridablanca cinemas, Filmoteca de Cataluña and Zumzeig) with online screenings at Filmin. The festival will present more than 80 films (between long and short films).

The 2021 edition of the D’A Film Festival Barcelona

D'A 2021 opens on April 29 with the French film Goodbye, idiots by Albert Dupontel, a crazy road trip that has become the great winner of this year's César Awards. You will also be able to see films by great cinema masters such as The phone of the wind, Nobuhiro Suwa's return to Japan to portray the fragile emotional recovery ten years after the tsunami; Abel Ferrara's Siberia, the sixth film by the New Yorker starring Williem Dafoe, practically turned into the director's alter ego in his eternal drive between sex and death; or Rizi / Days by the great Asian director Tsai Ming-liang, a marvel that won the Teddy award at the last Berlinale.

The sections of the D’A

The D'A program maintains the usual sections: Directions (established directors of world cinema); Talents (directors with less than three films in their filmography); Transicions (emerging authors who are already more than promises); Focus (retrospective section, dedicated this year to the Polish director Małgorzata Szumowska, one of the most outstanding directors of contemporary Polish cinema and a cult director of European cinema); Un Impulso Colectivo 2021, which will review the state of Spanish cinema produced outside of the official status; and Special Sessions (special screenings such as Life was that by David Martín de los Santos).
