Our seventh edition of Ibizacinefest, already like new
qualifying festival for the Goya Awards 2023 for the
fiction and documentary short film categories, has
been a resounding success with the public, press and films
released in Spain. With 10 days of projections in the
island of Ibiza and reaching all of Spain with our
online programming through FILMIN.
We have once again met our two parallel objectives of
bring to our islands the most courageous and
cryptic, and at the same time, as a festival markedly
territorial, quality independent cinema that will reach the
commercial halls of the peninsula, but never to Ibiza.
The 2023 edition has been a great success with the public and
press, confirming the IBZCF as one of the main
emerging festivals in Spain.
We believe in a committed auteur cinema, with points of
necessary sight, that can move in substance and form, in
the margins of the norms of commercial cinema, with total
creative freedom.
IBZCF is once again a 100% face-to-face festival, but
Filmin continues to be essential for us, giving the
possibility of having viewers throughout Spain.
We offer national online visibility to the films that
wish (14 feature films in the 2023 edition), with
various possibilities of permanence during the 10 days
of the festival, even offering 24-hour premieres.
Filmin also connects us with the industry and our
desire to participate and assist in the distribution of these
films, since some of them, discovered in the
IBZCF, although they are state premieres, obtain contracts and
They are included in the Filmin catalogue.
