L'Alternativa 2009. Barcelona Independent Film Festival

L'Alternativa 2009

It's been another busy year for L'Alternativa. The Festival travelled to nine cities with specially curated programmes, opening doors and sharing festival films with a wider audience. And we've relished the rewarding challenge of organising the 16th edition.

This year we received 1720 films from 79 countries and selected 60 films to compete in the official sections. The result is a stunning panorama of contemporary independent filmmaking that bears witness to a vibrant community off the commercial circuit.

There are also five parallel sections offering festivalgoers the chance to discover little-known work, as well as a seminar on film music, roundtables and other spaces for debate.

We've put together a packed week of activities to complement the film-schools section, and the Hall Screen will once again be screening an original programme of films in a unique setting. It's great to be back.
