Zabaltegi-Tabakalera + Plus (2017)
Zabaltegi-Tabakalera is the most open competitive section of the San Sebastian Film Festival. Here there are no norms or time and style limitations: shorts, medium features, full- length films, fiction, documentary, animation, series, installations, directors, male and female, discoveries for the future, and contemporary classics. The idea is to programme works that show that cinema that constantly seeks new forms and themes is present on screens all over the world. A true open zone, a zone of risk for spectators, male and female, who want “something more” from their experience in a movie theatre.
Last year we re-programmed ten films, so the Festival and the section could stretch into the month of October. This time we’re going a step further: we offered 12 screenings throughout the entire month to broaden, take a new look at and discover other works by some of the directors, male and female, present in the section. We rescheduled 3 films from the competition section in double bill screenings. The rest of this initiative allowed us to broaden the universes proposed: kindred films, connections, previous shorts, first films, and works which extended the horizons of the section: Zabaltegi-Tabakalera more Zabaltegi-Tabakalera than ever: +PLUS.
