• Sitges Film Festival celebrates 50 years

    An exhibition commemorating 50 years of the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival opens on Thursday at the Catalan Film Archive. The exhibit covers the festival’s history, showing how it has evolved with different films and guests summarizing the past five decades. ‘Cinema is Fantastic’ is the title of the retrospective which includes all 50 posters from past editions, together with pictures of the main guests invited to the festival over the years and images from some of the films that have been screened in Sitges. “We are celebrating 50 years of the festival and are at a high point. We wanted to show the entire journey from the 1960s up until now,” said curator, Diego López. The exhibition can be visited in Barcelona until September 17, after which it will be moved to Sitges to coincide with this year’s edition of the festival.
