The Vall de Ribes Cinema Friends Association presents the 8th Gollut Festival.

The Gollut Festival is an exhibition of committed cinema, with a social and environmental theme that will present the works selected in the competition for six days. The Festival aims to show the aspects that concern society and that are not sufficiently disseminated in movie theaters, the media or the usual audiovisual distribution channels. It will show national or international cinematographic works that have as their theme socio-political, environmental awareness, or that show some form of activism in favor of human rights and the diversity of cultures.

Awards and qualifications

The sections to film competition are:
• Award for the best short film, documentary or fiction (duration less than 30 min.)
• Award for the best feature film, documentary or fiction (duration greater than 30 min.)
• Audience Award: The Audience Award will be chosen based on the audience's votes.
• Award for professional career in the field of cinema, communication or social work.
• Miquel Porter i Moix Award


The jury will be made up of professionals from the world of cinema and audiovisual, as well as representatives of civil society.


The awards will be delivered at the closing session of the Festival, with the corresponding publication on the website and social networks.

The jury will award prizes unanimously. The prizes consist of a Gollut statuette and it does not have an economic endowment, with the exception of the Miquel Porter i Moix Prize, awarded by cineclubistas of the Catalan Federation of Cineclubs for an amount of € 150 among all the works presented.
