Un giorno in Barbagia Vittorio de Seta
Un giorno in Barbagia de Vittorio de Seta

A unique section in the panorama of international festivals, a space that delves into the creative processes and development of the filmmakers who participate in the Official Section. Mirrors shows previous films by these filmmakers, or by other authors who have influenced their work. In this way, the public can contextualize and understand the motivations and aesthetic keys of contemporary authors, establishing connections between past and present.

FILMADRID has made this section one of the pillars of its programming, following the firm conviction that it is necessary to change the structures and philosophy of film festivals, enhancing knowledge and in-depth reflection on the artists' works.
