Carla Simón (1986) was raised in a small Catalan village. She directed the short films Born Positive, Lipstick and Las Pequeñas Cosas, all selected to several international film festivals. Her last short film, Lacuna (2016) is a very personal project in which she used her mother’s letters as a starting point. Estiu 1993 is her debut film, produced by Inicia Films and Avalon. It premiered at the Berlinale 2017 where it won the GWFF Best First Feature Award and the Generation Kplus Grand Prix Jury Award. The film won more than 30 prizes in festivals all over the world and it was the Spanish Oscar submission. While preparing her second feature, Carla teaches film to young people through the ‘Cinema en Curs’ project and to film students at UPF and ESCAC.

On the day of the event itself, we will check whether or not the current situation and measures allow the event to take place. In case of cancellation, everyone who registered will be notified immediately.
