For nearly three decades we've been offering filmgoers and professionals a unique opportunity to discover and enjoy screenings and activities that value creative freedom, diversity, innovation, commitment and thought-provoking reflection. L'Alternativa has three competition sections in l'Alternativa Official: Spanish Films, International Feature Films and International Short Films. L'Alternativa Parallel presents tributes, premieres, little-known films, work by new directors and a programme of family screenings. And l'Alternativa Hall offers a rich, varied programme of free screenings, performances and debates.
Alongside the screenings, l'Alternativa Activities includes masterclasses, debates with creators, panel discussions, creative workshops for children and grownups and Film Schools seminars. In addition, l'Alternativa Professionals organises a Professional Symposium and Mentoring Projects.
