15/10/2020.- The 65th edition of Seminci will be sponsoring, for the fourth consecutive year, the annual meeting of film distributors, which will this time put the focus on the future of film festivals and the distribution of auteur films in Spain. In addition to encouraging a fruitful discussion among the sector’s professionals, this event seeks to facilitate the access of independent Spanish distributors to the titles programmed by the festival that have not yet sold their rights in Spain, which is the case with almost 60% of the films screening at Seminci.

Martín (Huelva’s Ibero-American Film Festival); Carlos Madrid and Rosa Roig (respectively Valencia’s International Festival and Mostra), Conxita Casanovas (Barcelona’s Sant Jordi International Film Festival), Alejandro Díaz Castaño (Gijón), Joan González (Docs Barcelona), Andrea Guzmán (Documenta Madrid), Ángel Sala (Sitges), and Emiliano Allende (Medina del Campo). The director of Seminci, Javier Angulo, will be hosting the event.
