Starting tomorrow, the Film Festival becomes an excellent attraction for moviegoers. After two years lost due to the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic, the Film Festival returns tomorrow and until Thursday to theaters with tickets at 3.50 euros, an exceptional price to see premiere films. Tickets can now be purchased online both on cinema websites and on traditional ticket sales websites and, of course, also at cinema box offices.
As usual, before buying tickets, viewers must obtain their accreditation on the official website www.fiestadelcine.com, with the only requirement being that they are over 14 years old and under 60.
This is the eighteenth edition of this event, agreed and organized by the Spanish Federation of Cinemas (FECE) with the intention of encouraging the public to go to theaters and recover the social habit of going to the cinema as it has always been.
The pandemic has only aggravated a critical situation in which exhibitors have been submerged after an average drop in theater attendance of 47.3 percent between January and March compared to the average for the same period between 2015 and 2019, according to data from Comscore Movies Spain.
Evidence of the success of this event is evident, such as that of October 2019, its last edition as such, when 2,600 tickets were sold at OCine Les Gavarres on its first day or 3,000 on the second day. The Federation of Cinematographic Distributors (FEDICINE), the Federation of Cinemas of Spain (FECE) and the Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA) make this economic effort to motivate attendance, but above all to give an opportunity to recover the magic of watching movies on the big screen without thinking about the price.
Spectators will have available in the 343 cinemas that participate in the Festival most of the recently released films, such as the successful Alcarràs and other titles like The Northman, The Game of Keys, Vicky’s Secret, On Point, Where’s Anne Frank, Scoundrels, Dog: Wild Rides, Counting Sheep, The Lost City, The Boss, Morbius, Paris 13th District, Sonic 2 The Movie, The Batman, A Little Plan… How to Save the Planet, Downtown Abbey. A new era, Ambulance. Escape Plan, Arthur Rambo, Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets, CODA or others like the terrifying Venicephreniaby Álex de la Iglesia and Xby Ti West, with a slasher film within a film.
