Núria Giménez (1976, Barcelona) studied journalism, international relations and documentary filmmaking. After her studies, she improved her knowledge on filmmaking by attending masterclasses and seminars by filmmakers such as Virginia García del Pino, Wang Bing and Stephen Frears. She directed her first documentary short, Kafeneio, in 2017. It was screened at Documenta Madrid and at Bogota Documentary International Film Festival. My Mexican Pretzel (2019) is her first long feature.
Lucia Alemany was born in 1985 in Traiguera, a small Valencian village. When she was 18 she moved to Vic to study Audiovisual Communication. In 2009 she started her studies at ESCAC (Catalonia Film and Audiovisual school), specializing in directing.
Visionär Film Fest has programmed a total of six Catalan productions for this year’s edition.
Last summer, the productions Las niñas, by Pilar Palomero, and the short films Daucus Carota, by Carola Linares, and Marleni, no Marlen, by Carmen Aumedes were programmed in two sessions of Catalan cinema in collaboration with FeldKino. The festival is also working on its expansion towards other European cities and was presented for the first time in Madrid, with a selection of the best works presented during the last years in Berlin, which included Panteres, by Erika Sánchez Marco.
