The company producing the conference, 18 Chulos Events, has decided to open this event, which will continue on travelling round the Spanish geography, within the Film Festival’s 20th anniversary
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Thursday 8 April 2021.- The First Conference on Film Work, produced by 18 Chulos and taking place on April 9 and 10 within the Film Festival’s 20th anniversary, will be broadcasted on streaming by RTVE Digital.
The event promises to be the first in a series of periodical meetings through which the event and content production company 18 Chulos invites to reflect on audiovisual’s different facets.
Divided into two events, the conference will focus on the directing and acting trades, in such a way that Fernando Trueba, David Trueba and Santiago Segura, on the one hand, and Maribel Verdú, Antonio de la Torre and Alberto San Juan (this last one joining instead of Javier Cámara, who could not travel to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), on the other hand, will talk among them and with the audience about the film trade. These talks will be conducted by José Miguel Monzón Navarro, better known as El Gran Wyoming.
Both events, whose seats were sold out by students of modules related to cinema and the audiovisual, will be broadcasted on streaming by RTVE Digital.
FRIDAY April 9 – 4 pm to 6:30 pm (GMT+0)
David Trueba, Fernando Trueba and Santiago Segura will set out their vision on the filmmaker trade.
The first event will have three of the most brilliant filmmakers of our cinematography, who will briefly go over their careers. Thus, Oscar-winner Fernando Trueba will share in his international experience and how the trophy conditioned his later career. Writer, journalist and director David Trueba will start speaking about his first and acclaimed experience as director of films such as The Good Life, Fernando Fernán Gómez’s brilliant portrait (and, therefore, of an essential part in the history of our cinema) in La silla de Fernando (Fernando’s Chair) or the multi-award-winning Living Is Easy with Eyes Closed. And the successful and always funny Santiago Segura will tell the audience how a suburb kid became Spain’s biggest box-office draw.
This journey will finish with a round table to discuss the essence of cinema, its technique and the role it plays in our lives, as well as the challenges we now face due to the new and strange situation we are currently living.
SATURDAY 10 April – 1 pm to 3:30 pm (GMT+0)
Antonio de la Torre, Alberto San Juan and Maribel Verdú reflect on the acting trade.
Three of our country’s most highly regarded and prestigious actors, winners of two Goya awards each and nominated in multiple occasions, will have their turn on the second day of the conference: Antonio de la Torre, Alberto San Juan and Maribel Verdú. Together they will hold a round table to discuss different manners of tackling a character and their personal ways of doing so, while also questioning to what extent the pandemic has change how they work in the shootings and their way of dealing with acting.
