A balance of ForadCamp 2020


ForadCamp 2020, 9th Nature and Cinema Exhibition, was held on September 26 and 27 in Figaró-Montmany, with a large audience. Despite the capacity restrictions due to COVID-19, almost 150 people have been able to enjoy the films screened, with great feedback from the spectators.

We want to thank all the people who filled the Nuevo Casino Figaró and decided to visit a theater under such complicated circumstances as those of this year’s.

Likewise, we would like to thank the collaboration and support of our sponsors: the Diputación de Barcelona, the Can Plans farmhouse, Casa Tía Julia, Docs Barcelona, Karma Films, Vermuts Miró, the Cultural Association of Granollers and the Filmmakers of Granollers.

We hope to meet again in Figaró-Montmany next year, to celebrate together the 10th edition of ForadCamp!

Get caught up in nature!

 

ForadCamp 2020 will be a non competitive exhibition

Logo FDC general

Due to the Covid-19 crisis and the uncertainty of not knowing if in October 2020 we will be able to celebrate the festival at Figaró-Montmany, we have decided not to open the call to receive short films for this year’s edition.

We are designing ForadCamp 2020 as a non-competitive exhibition with materials selected by our team. We hope the evolution of this pandemic let us make public screenings in October. Thanks for your patience! We will keep you updated.

2018 Award Winners

FORADCAMP 2018 AWARD LIST

These are the award winners of ForadCamp 2018, 7th Nature and Cinema Exhibition.

Zirdzin, hallo! (Hello, horse!), (by Laila Pakalnina, 2017)

«Zirdzin, hallo!», by Laila Pakalnina, obtained the Best Documentary Jury Award 2018.

  • The Jury, composed of Mercedes Álvarez, Sara Xiol and Raül Ruiz, awarded the Jury Prize for Best Documentary, to «Zirdzin, hallo!», by Laila Pakalnina. The Jury awarded it «for the original look of the director, which allows us to discover a new reading of the landscape, with the intermediation of the elements created by man, that stand between the viewer and nature. A very suggestive vision with a great planning and assembly work, in short, a minimalist short film that is at the same time very expressive«.
  • Also, the Jury granted a Special Mention to «Cucli», by Xavier Marrades, because, «from a small story of a character that is very close, and of his intimate relationship with a bird, he offers us his particular vision of universal themes such as mourning, death, the meaning of life, and acceptance of the positive and negative aspects of existence, showing love for the protagonists without falling into the melodramatic excess «.
  • The Audience Award also went to «Cucli«.
