The Sants, Hostafrancs and La Bordeta Fantastic and Horror Film Marathon is a historic event of the associative fabric of the Sants quarter that reaches its 34th edition this year. Its main and peculiar distinctive value is that attendees make comments, including screaming, while the movies are projected. This behavior has become a tradition that is part of the show, and that is accepted with the idea of making the rest of the audience laugh. Although offensive remarks are sometimes heard, the organization encourages the public to express their comments in a constructive way. This year, however, they have clearly announced that sexist, racist and LGTBIphobic comments will not be tolerated.
