In line with this criteria, preferred films for the Official Section are adaptations of literary works, productions based on or related to historical events and film biopics about well-known figures. The BCN FILM FEST aspires to maintain a tight link with the cultural and popular characteristics of the emblematic Sant Jordi festival, the celebration of which coincides with the dates of the film festival. The aim is to hold a festival that appeals to the film-loving public and those who are interested in culture in general, where both art-house projects and films aimed at a wider audience can come together thanks to one common denominator: quality. The BCN FILM FEST believes film to be a powerful educational tool, which is why a part of the festival’s programme is aimed at schools, the intention being that both teachers and students might use the films as teaching and learning aids in specific subjects.
