The Festival continues expanding its collaborative network, establishing a close relationship and exchanging content with both local and international entities, agents and cultural institutions, reinforcing the cultural ecosystem. These are some of this edition’s collaborations:


From Chantal Ackerman to Harmony Korine, including Ettore Scola, Spike Lee, Basilio Martín Patino, Lucrecia Martel and our beloved Agnès Varda. This year, you can also enjoy the Festival on the film platform of our friends, Filmin. Come in, search for the Getxophoto channel and immerse yourself in stories and films that have made us think about the idea of to share in different ways.
