Launched by Jaume Ripoll, Catalan cofounder of the streaming platform Filmin, Atlántida is among the world’s most important online film festivals. In recent years, the festival has introduced a physical base in Palma de Mallorca in complement to its virtual side, which brings a selection of socially engaged films directly to your lazy Barcelonian couch.
For the 12th edition the online program features a range of newly selected films; Heartbeat (2022) by Aino Suni, 99 moons (2022) by Jan Gassmann, Other People (2021) by Aleksandra Terpinska, Théo y las metamorfosis (2021) by Damien Odoul, and Una Femmina: código de silencio (2022) by Francesco Costabile, amongst several others.
Most films are in Spanish and represent world premieres. Watch online from July 24th until August 25th.
