Video Power at Gijón
We were very proud to celebrate our fifth anniversary with an eight-film Video Power program at the 56th Festival de Cine Internacional de Gijón in November. Our very own Rosa Vrij and Claudia Sánchez Jiménez were there to introduce the program and Video Power’s unique production model to the audience.
Based in Asturias (Spain) and next to the sea, Gijón had a neatly organised industry program, full of interesting lectures, gatherings and arranged dinners. Rosa and Claudia had the opportunity to meet up with programmers of international festivals like Locarno Film Festival and Tampere Short Film Festival.
The little time that was left during these five days was filled with watching some of the festival’s movies. Favourite: ★ by Johann Lurf. A 90-minutes work-in-progress video compilation of all the scenes with starry skies in the history of film.
