Cinema Lliure a la Platja is a free taster of independent cinema that takes place on summer nights on various beaches along the Catalan coast. Feature films from here and abroad are selected for both adult and family audiences to enjoy from various film festivals. Directors, actors and actresses are also invited to offer an intimate and enriching cultural experience.
The feature film is always preceded by a short film from the FILMETS festival. What’s more, Cinema Lliure a la Platja is opening their New Talent call for another year so film schools from across Catalonia can show short films directed by their students. The winners will be shown before one of the feature films.
Cinema Lliure a la Platja supports sustainablecinema. For this reason, we promote the use of public transport and bicycle and endeavour to reduce the use of paper as much as possible in our media communication, among other initiatives.
