The UPV/EHU Summer Course UPV/EHU Miradas críticas sobre los festivales de cine: historia, cultura y política will run next week, from Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd September. Organised by the San Sebastian Festival, the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola (EQZE) and the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, the course will serve as an introduction to festival studies, establishing dialogues between past, present and future. The talks will address a historical analysis of international film festivals and their relationship with the main contemporary social and political changes, while the round tables will open a space for discussion on the present and future of these cinematic gatherings. 

The course will be directed by Pablo La Parra Pérez, Head of the EQZE Research Department and principal researcher of the project Zinemaldia 70. All possible stories. In his talk, La Parra will look at The ruptures of the long ’68 and, particularly, the case study of the San Sebastian Festival in the Transition, The late ’68 of Zinemaldia. The professor and researcher Caroline Moine (Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines) will speak about Cinema and the Cold War and The birth of festivals in a divided Germany, and Aida Vallejo (University of the Basque Country) will take a closer look at The proliferation of festivals at global level and the tendency “towards a specialised exhibition model”, with the focus on documentary film festivals.

This introduction to the critical and compared study of film festivals will be completed with three round tables. Paz Lázaro, Berlinale selection committee programmer, and Marta Selva, director of Barcelona’s Mostra Internacional de Filmes de Dones, will discuss feminism and the gender gap in festivals; Charlotte Serrand, programme advisor for the Festival de Cannes’ Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, and Víctor Iriarte, head of the Tabakalera Film and Audiovisual programme, will analyse the challenge of programming for 21st century festivals; and Alejandro Díaz Castaño (FICX Gijón), Vanesa Fernández Guerra (ZINEBI) and José Luis Rebordinos (San Sebastian Festival) will unravel the challenges and prospects of festivals in Spain. Moine, Serrand and Selva will not come to San Sebastian and will participate telematically.

This meeting point between research and film industry professionals seeks to encourage discussion on festivals from a critical, historical and compared point of view with the objectives of understanding relations between festivals, cinema culture and the main historical and social transformations, addressing case studies based on research carried out into international film festival archives, and debating and reflecting on their political role.

Although all places have now been taken for the physical attendance format, it is still possible to enrol to follow the course online live via Zoom (www.uik.eus).
