A FILM FESTIVAL FOR SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION
Protesta is an international film festival on social criticism that seeks to put its grain of sand to help transform society through cinema, and wants to do it constructively, positively and creatively, making the festival a party of denunciation cinema.
INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ON SOCIAL CRITIQUE
Protesta film festival projects feature films, documentaries and animation on social criticism in different places in the city of Vic.
Festival Protesta screen social short films from the Oficial Selection and Non-Competitive Selection, from among hundreds of works presented to the international competition.
During the 11 days of the festival, various activities like concerts, conferences, theatre performances, exhibitions, round tables, children's activities and master classes are planned in different spaces in Vic. All of them relate to the theme of the edition of 2016 which is ‘Rebellious women'.
The last day of the festival is dedicated to children with screenings of children's films with social content. At the same time we organize workshops in order to raise awareness of the social problems that surrounds us.
A FEMINIST FILM FESTIVAL
Festival Protesta has an equal program in feature films. The research and selection work is more complex, due to the small number of films directed by women. As we are a festival strongly feminist, we did not want to make promises to fight for parity, or sign commitment letters to make an equitable program in a few years, there are no excuses, we have done it already!
