We run two initiatives to help extend the reach of the Barcelona Independent Film Festival, l'Alternativa, beyond the time and place of the Festival itself:

Exchanges & l'Alternativa Takes a Trip



Festival Exchanges

Over the years, l'Alternativa has been invited to a large number of festivals through our Exchanges project, which has created the opportunity to give and receive programmes and promote the Festival's films.

We have prepared programmes based on l'Alternativa Official and l'Alternativa Hall from the latest editions of the Festival to be screened at other festivals with the same vision of audiovisual works; in return, we would like to screen programmes of films from these festivals at l'Alternativa.

In recent years, we have carried out Exchanges with festivals such as FCST (Buenos Aires), Imago (Portugal), IndieLisboa (Lisbon), Documenta (Madrid), Signes de Nuit (Paris), Open Cinema (Saint Petersburg), Love & Anarchy (Helsinki), Intents (Seville), EMAF European Media Art Festival (Osnabrück), AFX Amsterdam Film eXperience (Amsterdam) and Cork Film Festival (Cork), INVIDEO (Milan), Festival des Cinémas Différents et Expérimentaux (Paris), VIS Vienna Independent Shorts (Austria), Anim'est (Bucharest/Rumania), In The Palace (Bulgaria), Alternative Film/Video Belgrade (Serbia), Athens Video Dance Project (Greece), Solo para Cortos (Barcelona), MOV - Festival Int. de Cinema Universitário de Pernambuco (Brazil), Experiments in Cinema Albuquerque (USA), amongst others.
