Parallel Activities


One of the main goals of these activities is to promote interaction and cultural exchange between film creators and film lovers. We hold roundtables to encourage dialogue, share information, debate areas of interest to professionals and discuss the latest issues in the world of filmmaking.

In recent years we've welcomed key figures from the academic and filmmaking worlds, including Arturo Ripstein and Paz Alicia Garciadiego, Humberto Solás, Basilio M. Patino, Bob McAndrew, Mario Handler, Joaquim Jordŕ, Don Askarian and Corneliu Poromboiu.

Our goal is to offer activities to meet the needs of professionals, filmgoers and the industry alike.

You can now find information on all the Parallel Activities at l'Alternativa 2011 on the website: the roundtable Istanbul: Off-camera Tales with Imre Azem and Ulus Atayurt; as well as the roundtable Storytellers, with Patricio Guzmán, José Maria de Orbe and Paula Ortiz.
