DocsBarcelona festival, best of documentary cinema

The 22nd edition is full of films on politics, feminism, nature and gentrification, among others.

The best documentary film festival in the city is DocsBarcelona, and the 22nd edition once again proves this, with more than forty documentaries from 26 countries all over the world. Over eleven days, films from a wide range of styles and themes will be shown, including pieces on politics, feminism, nature and gentrification, among others. The programme is broken into three official competition sessions: Panorama, Latitude DocsBarcelona and What The Doc! It also features other sections, competition and non-competition, and parallel activities such as workshops and master classes. The festival kicks off with Aquarela by Victor Kossakovsky and closes with El Pepe, una vida suprema, a portrait of Pepe Mujica by Emir Kusturica. The programme also includes films that have won awards at international festivals, such as Honeyland (winner of three awards at Sundance), Cachada (SXSW Public Award), Los Reyes (IDFA Special Award from the Jury) and What Walaa Wants (DSG Special Jury Prize – Best Canadian Documentary).

Other films we will be able to see include, for example, the first international production on “El Procés”, Avec un sourire, la révolution!, and documentaries made in Catalonia, such as City for Sale, Beirut, la vie en rose, Me llamo Violeta, Operació Globus, Ángel Pavlovsky and Qué tal Pascual. It will all take place from 15 to 26 May at various times, at the Aribau Multicines and Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona.

There are several package options, as well as individual tickets at different prices. You can get your tickets on the festival website.
