L'Alternativa » 15th Barcelona Independent Film Festival

Welcome to the latest edition of l'Alternativa, which once again aims to open Barcelona eyes to films unlikely to be seen in commercial cinemas.

The Festival aims to be a space for meeting likeminded people and offer an opportunity to see short, feature, animation and documentary films that open our eyes, make us rethink the way we see the world, teach us new things and take us far away (from Mexico to Lebanon).

In other words, we offer films to shake you up, make you feel alive and make you think. Films carefully sought out, found and brought here to prove independent filmmaking is alive and kicking.

We warmly invite you to the fifteenth edition of a festival that each year strives to offer new ideas and share the organisers' passion for alternative filmmaking.
