Formentera Film wraps 5 days of all-ages screenings

foto 2021 FF EAfter five days of festivities and three nights of official selections screened at Sant Francesc’s Plaça de la Constitució, islanders have bid farewell to the latest edition of Formentera Film. The festival featured 22 international entries (two from Balears) spanning fiction, documentary film and animation, before culminating with a ceremony and awards gala on Saturday 15 May to honour multiple winners. On the jury of four women and one man were Spanish and international filmmakers Àngela Bosch, Vicka Duran, Irene Moray, Cris Wiegandt and Carlos Bover.

Alexandre Siqueira's Purpleboy won Jury Selection for Best Short Film.
Thomas Woodroffe's Fiebre Austral and Álvaro Carmona's El Tratamiento won Special Jury Mention.
Carmen Córdoba González's Roberto won Youth Jury Award for Best Short Film.
Andrew Goldsmith and Bradley Slabe's Lost & Found won the Children’s Selection for Best Short Film.
Miguel Parra's (A)NORMAL won Audience Pick for Best Short Film. Parra attended the FF gala.
Bruno Collet's Memorable won Audience Pick for Best Animation.

FF prizes were crafted by artists Lorenzo Pepe, Simona Colzi, Andrés Rodríguez, Raquel Caramazana Bocanegra, Sol Courrèges Boné, Enric Majoral and Fran Lucas.

Organisers opted for an entirely in-person format even, as FF director Monica Timperi pointed out, “in times as tricky as these, when most other festivals have gone online”. But nightly screenings at the Sala de Cultura—Cinema never failed to draw enthusiastic, maximum-capacity crowds.

Child- and teen-friendly features ensured younger audiences enjoyed a place at the festival too — as did pleasant weather. The result? “Guests, filmmakers, the jury and the festival team were able to enjoy the complete artistic experience”, beamed Timpieri, noting that efforts were already under way to get the 2023 Formentera Film up and running.
