About Recent Cinema From Spain



The Recent Cinema from Spain exhibition series presents to Miami today's best films from Spain. This Seventh Art showcase will feature appearances by leading figures in the Spanish film industry, who have contributed significantly to putting "Made in Spain" productions at the vanguard of filmmaking worldwide.

RECENT CINEMA FROM SPAIN was set up in Miami in 2011 as an initiative of the Spanish Audiovisual Producers' Rights Management Association (using the Spanish acronym "EGEDA"), aiming to provide a new outlet for promotion of Spanish cinema in the United States, boosting its circulation to the public in general, and the international audiovisual industry.

After only three editions, this film series has become well established in the city of Miami. From its success among the public and critics alike, over these two years the event has earned a place for itself on the city's cultural and cinematic calendar.

The international prestige and evaluation of Spanish cinema has been steadily growing in recent years. Spanish films, actors, directors, and technical experts are getting top awards, and movie theaters around the world enthusiastically receive these cinema personalities. Through the projections and their talks and presentations, this exhibition, which aspires to be the main event for Spanish cinema in Miami and a must on the city's cultural calendar, will allow American, especially Latino, audiences to get in touch directly with filmmaking that is rich in genres and nuances.

The exhibition, opening with a special screening of one of the most relevant Spanish films of the year and a selection of six of the best productions of the year.  Is taking place at the prestigious Olympia Theater at The Gusman Center, a beacon for the South Florida arts community with a marvelous auditorium with seating for 1,567 persons, which is not solely a venue, rather than a beautiful facility that supports the entertainment industry in South Florida.

EGEDA is a not-for-profit service organization which manages copyright for audiovisual producers, managing in their name those rights which are unfeasible to manage on an individual basis. EGEDA also provides various services to the producers and the audiovisual industry overall. The association represents and defends the interests of audiovisual producers in Spain and Latin America and is especially active in the field of intellectual property rights management.

The exhibition is a partnership between EGEDA and The Olympia theater, whose  interest is bringing bigger audiences to downtown Miami to the Olympia Theater. And in previous editions The Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) of Miami Dade College, one of the leading film festivals in the United States, was also a partner, whose mission is to bridge cultural understanding and encourage artistic development and excellence by provoking thought through film.

We have collaboration and support from the Spanish Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA), under the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, which is dedicated to the preservation, development and promotion of the film and audiovisual industries. And, also the American Cinematheque of Hollywood for the selection process of the participating films.
