Festival start: 16 July 2022      Festival end: 23 July 2022

The association "Amics del Cine de la Vall de Ribes" is excited to present the 9th Gollut Festival.

The Gollut Festival exhibits cinema committed to social and environmental themes. More than ever, this festival edition is characterised by its strong will for inclusion and awareness of diversities. It will show national and international cinematographic works with ethic and aesthetic rigour, wich explore and experiment creatively with new narratives and modes of  audiovisual representation.

This year, the festival is guided by the theme of "edges": we support a peripheral cinema that usually find itself outside the commercial realm of distribution. We take into consideration works that navigate different cinematographic genders, explore new narratives and enable new modes of audiovisual representation. We have a special interest for films at the margins between fiction and non-fiction, or works that question this distinction.


-Award for the best feature film (duration greater than 30 min., maximum 140 min.)

-Award for the best short film (duration less than 30 min.)
