GIJÓN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, aims to showcase a wide and varied selection of auteur cinema currently being produced worldwide and especially focused on innovative films and emerging filmmakers. High quality, personal, young in its shape, edgy and independent cinema at a creative level. During its selection process, the Festival will prioritise those works of interest that have their World, International, European or Spanish premiere at FICX.
The new Official Selection of Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival comprises its main four categories, combining fiction, non-fiction and/or animation works. A commitment to the quality and audacity of contemporary cinema that is outside of the mainstream, with special emphasis on the European and Latin American cinema, in which priority will be given to the discovery of young filmmaking talents, whose films will coexist with the latest works of acclaimed filmmakers more in the form of the present.
