Venue: mk2 Cinesur Nervión Plaza (c/ Luis de Morales, 3)
Dates: November 6th - 12th
A variety of points of view and styles of current European cinema make it an essential tool to review new perspectives on history and, in addition, to immerse oneself in emerging perspectives on current affairs. For this reason, the SEFF is organizing a seminar in which it sets out to examine closely the state of the current state of the European film scene in ten film sessions (from the Festival's official program), encouraging critical thinking through outstanding works of today's cinematography.
The seminar sessions will take place right in the cinema. Before each screening, seminar participants will attend an introduction by a specialist who will present key points that will help and accompany the viewing, followed by a Q&A in which specialists and students will analyze together with the director or part of the film's artistic team what they have seen. The objective is to encourage the development of reflection and analysis through cinema, beyond the passive viewing of the films.
In these times of pandemic, when cinema has been forced to confine itself to the small screens of homes, this activity is like a reunion with the movie theaters. The seminar is a collective experience, respecting the medium and the viewing conditions in which the works were conceived by their creators.
The seventh edition of the seminar is the result of a collaboration between the Seville European Film Festival and the University of Seville, through its Center for Cultural Initiatives (CICUS).
