Barcelona Independent Film Festival

The most experimental auteur cinema.

In 1993, L’Alternativa was the first festival in Barcelona to commit to auteur cinema. Since then, its programming has focussed on a selection of films that reject conventional approaches and which are not included in more commercial events.

Together with the different sections of short films and feature films, the festival offers the public and professionals a unique opportunity to enjoy activities that defend diversity, creativity and reflection from a more experimental and daring perspective.

The festival organizes round tables, seminars for schools, family activities, professional meetings or concerts and, throughout the year, travels around the world.
