The 55th edition of Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival will pay special attention to national filmmakers with great projection both inside and outside of our borders: directors with special points of view and, sometimes, not too complacent.
Although the submissions and the final programme have not been closed yet, three Spanish filmmakers have confirmed their attendance at the Short Films Official Section: Luis López Carrasco, Ramón Lluís Bande and Pablo Hernando.
The FICX attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the latest work of Luis López Carrasco (Murcia, 1981), a member of the audiovisual collective Los Hijos, whose works have been shown at festivals like Locarno, Rotterdam, New York, BAFICI or Viennale. With Aliens, the selected short film to compete in Gijón/Xixón, López Carrasco keeps on the path begun with his feature film El Futuro (2014), a nostalgic yet critical vision about the 1980s and the movida madrileña through the corrosive and iconoclastic figure of Tesa Arranz, a member of the band Zombies.
Another one of the authors that will be part of the main short films competition at FICX will be the Asturian Ramón Lluís Bande (Gijón/Xixón 1972), who returns to the festival that premiered his first works with Aún me quedan balas para dibujar, where he keeps revealing the history of the 20th century in our country. Loyal to his compromised and militant cinema, Bande recovers the memory of Franco's prisoners through the walls of Cangas del Narcea Court's prison. Bande returns to Gijón/Xixón to compete for the first time in the Official Section and contributes with this powerful and exciting work to the visibility that Asturian cinema will have in the Festival's international competitions.
Pablo Hernando (Vitoria, 1986) has chosen FICX to premiere Salió con prisa hacia la montaña in the short films official competition. After the retrospective he received during the last edition of the Festival, the director will once again surprise the audience with his personal sense of humour, unclassified characters and a peculiar and unpredictable cinema whose originality places him at the audiovisual forefront of our country.
