19 APRIL - 2 MAY
IberoDocs, Scotland’s Ibero-American Documentary Film Festival, will be running for the first time online in the entire UK and Ireland from the 19 April to 2 May. Moreover, some of the films will be available to watch in 22 Ibero-American countries including Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico, Cuba, Peru and Brazil.
With the online format of the festival allowing the original team to be reunited, breaking geographical barriers like never before, and introducing new accessibility measurements, the 8th edition of IberoDocs brings a programme of 21 documentaries, highlighting that both in our darkest as well as our brightest moments, art (in any of its forms) has become a necessary and faithful companion.
The Festival, which has consistently celebrated equality, diversity and accessibility as its core values, will apply them even further when bringing this years’ festival to life since all the feature-length films in the main programme will include subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing and the opening film Maricarmen will also have an audio description available.
The films including closed captions are: When You Listen, Nothing But the Sun, In a Whisper, Never Look Back, Free Color, Light Sensitive Ages, Discovering Jose Padilla, Map of Latin American Dreams, Maricarmen, Cinema Morocco, The Writer from a Country Without Bookstores.
Accompanying the core programme, there is a special free screening of the world premiere of Dreamed and Lived, by Ricardo Iscar and two short film programmes: A Spiritual Journey and The Endless Battle, for which we have invited filmmaker Fernando Vilchez to curate a series of films around his work I Can Only Show you the Color; commemorating the bicentennial of Peru’s independence in 2021.
Out of the 21 films in the programme, which are all Scottish premieres, eight are UK premieres, four international premieres and one world premiere.
