ForadCamp is a film exhibition organized by the Figaró-Montmany town and coordinated by the Association of Independent Documentary Filmmakers INDOC. The exhibition seeks to link the natural environment with independent personal cinema made with an innovative spirit. In the past five years, ForadCamp exhibited works from renowned directors from all over the world, as George Ovashvili, Neus Ballús, Simon Panay, Elisabeth Prandi, Lois Patiño, Laila Pakalnina, Jorge Tur, among others.
The Official Section of 2017 edition was composed of 14 non fiction films, where nature had a prominent place. The screening of selected films was held in the New Casino Figaró, on October 21 and 22 2017.
The Exhibition had a competitive Official Section composed of non-fiction films. The shorts competed for the following awards: Jury Award for Best Documentary –endowed with 300€–, the Audience Award, decided by the vote of the spectators, the Cultural Association of Granollers Prize, and Distribution Award –sponsored by Festhome, consisting of bonus for the international distribution of short selected–.
Besides, there was a feature film projection, a space for discussion with the directors attending the Exhibition, plus a guided tour with a cinephile touch around the Natural Park of Montseny.
The ForadCamp Nature and Cinema Exhibition has been held since 2012 until today. During these five years:
- we have received more than 250 works in preselection,
- we have projected more than 50 films, from 73 directors, coming from 21 countries,

We wish that in this sixth edition of the Festival we have contributed to bring good cinema to Figaró-Montmany.
