- Filmin is the main streaming platform for independent Spanish cinema; founded in 2007, it currently has over 10,000 films in catalogue
- This thematic channel reinforces the Gran-canarian festival’s condition as one of the focal points for independent and alternative films in Spain
The online cinema platform Filmin devotes a specific channel to the contents of the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival. It is an initiative that provides its subscribers with several of the films screening on this edition or some of the works by the filmmakers currently participating in the Festival.
Filmin devotes a particular section of this channel to some outstanding directors of the 2018 edition, such as Christina Petzold, Sigfrid Monleón, Agnes Varda, Guy Maddin o Hong Sang-soo, and also is showing certain films included in the Panorama Spain section, which focuses on “the most personal and radical Spanish cinema”.
Besides, on the same channel, Filmin revives some of the festival’s great hits in past editions, such as the films Personal Shopper (Olivier Assayas), Porto (CGbe Klinger), Stopped on Track (Andreas Dresen) or El bosque del luto (Naomi Kawase), among others.
And, as a special section, this platform also shows a selection of previous winners of the Festival which received the Golden and Silver Lady Harimaguada: Kékszakállú (Gastón Solnicki), El cartero de las noches blancas (Andrei Konchalovsky), Aquele Querido Mes de Agosto (Miguel Gomes), Un planeta solitario (Julia Loktev), Lola (Abuela) (Brillante Mendoza), Mis escenas de lucha (Jacques Doillon) and Tabú (Miguel Gomes).
Filmin is the main streaming platform for Spanish independent cinema. Founded in 2007, it currently has over 10,000 films in catalogue. The screening of a thematic channel exclusive to the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival reinforces the Gran-canarian festival’s condition as one of the focal points for independent and alternative films in Spain and strengthens the promotion of an already consolidated festival in the national and international calendar with its 18th ongoing edition.
