Over the years, l'Alternativa has scoured Spain for unique films and filmmakers for its Panorama section. This section aims to showcase a wide range of independent shorts and features produced (or coproduced) in Spain today well off the beaten track. We value potential over perfection and look for directors ready and willing to experiment with form and subject matter. Panorama presents original visions by filmmakers pioneering much-needed new ways of working.
Films in the Panorama section compete for the GAC Awards for Best Feature Film Screenplay and Best Short Film Screenplay, awarded by GAC (Guionistes Associats de Catalunya), as well as the Panorama Platja d'Aro—Costa Brava Award, which includes a one-week residency at the Hotel Costa Brava, courtesy of l'Alternativa, the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board and Platja d'Aro Town Council.
