    Response from festival:

    Thanks Angel. We will always remember your WORLD PREMIERE in Ibiza. A hug!!!!!

  • We were thrilled of being in the Pre-selection for best fiction short-film with "En la frontera".
    It is difficult, as a really low budget and independent film, to get to be selected amongst many other big projects, so thanks for the opportunity and for giving value to our work!

    Response from festival:

    We thank you very much for this reviews, since you did not reach the final projections, it is very hard to leave jobs like yours without reaching Ibiza. We hope to hear about your future projects and send you a big hug from filmmakers to filmmakers from Ibiza.

    No hay mayor privilegio que un festival seleccione nuestra película, poder asistir gracias al apoyo organizativo y esfuerzo de entes implicados, y a más a más volver con el premio del público. No tendríamos palabras suficientes para tanto agradecimeinto. Pero sí, al margen de ello, hay algo que destacar, son esos encuentros discernidos entre el personal asistente, directores de cine, actores, miembros de prensa y producción del festival, incluido su director Xavier Herrero, persona cercana, servicial y elocuente. Y digo encuentros discernidos, que no informales, pues todos ellos fueron diseñados para tal fin. Lograr que entre proyecciones y mesas redondas, podamos intercambiar análisis de las películas de otros compañeros sí, puesto que ello hizo que acabáramos todos "colegas"..., intercambiar conocimientos, anécdotes, experiencias y unas risas.... Desde una salida cultural por la ciudad descubriendo sus orígenes, hasta piscolabis donde deleitar alimentos de la tierra entre el cruce de palabras en varios idiomas con sabor a ensoñación.

    Para quienes asistimos, este festival ha supuesto un gran despertar.
    Gracias por permitirnos tan grata aventura cinéfila.

    Tracte proper i autèntic sense perdre la professionalitat.

    Hem de donar gràcies a tot l'equip organitzatiu i en especial a en Xavi Herrero, director del festival, que no només fa el que li toca sino que arriba molt més enllà.
