New Voices

Since 2020, the New Voices section has been the Curtas space particularly attentive to emerging names in contemporary cinema, seeking to map the most promising authors that have appeared in different latitudes. After Ana Maria Gomes, Elena López Riera, Ana Elena Tejera, Jacqueline Lentzou, Jorge Jácome, Ali Asgari and Farnoosh Samadi, in 2022 the highlight went to the French Céline Devaux and the Spanish Chema García Ibarra.

A space dedicated to new authors of world cinema, New Voices, presents small programs dedicated to emerging directors, but with a consistent work, developed in first short films or with first steps in a feature film work, but who are not necessarily linked to the festival's history. Two complementary ideas, one expressing an analytical and self-critical capacity, the other a look at cinema in its purest, youngest and, perhaps, most uncompromising state.

Still freshly highlighted are Céline Devaux and Chema García Ibarra:

With a career that began in animated cinema, Céline Devaux is today one of the emerging voices of French cinema and contemporary European cinema.

Chema García Ibarra's cinema embodies many of the social and political transformations of 21st century Spain. It is such an iconoclastic cinema that “Protoparticles” (2009) almost seems to be a premonitory film about the COVID-19 pandemic.
