The fourth edition of the Ibiza Cinema Festival started last April the 23rd with a screening of the documentary about 50 years of Adlib Fashion and the opening gala during the evening of the 24th in Can Ventosa, specifically in Platja d´en Bossa at Nassau Beach Club.
The presenter and comedian Eva Soriano, was on this occasion, the head of ceremonies, who transmitted a very important message: “We must support all initiatives related to cinema, culture and entertainment because we need them. The dynamics of now have made us change aspects of our life and it is crucial to continue doing projects like this, because they encourage and fill us with positivity”.
This festival created by Helher Escribano, has been consolidated with an edition in a hybrid format with nearly 24,000 viewings and in auditoriums around the island. A clear commitment to committed auteur films, with necessary points of view that can move in depth and form up to the margins of the rules of commercial cinema with total creative freedom.
In this way, Ibicine is presented as a clear commitment to the island’s emerging talent and also to filmmakers from around the world who dream about working in cinema and start making short films. A festival where the public falls in love with consuming short films, as if they were chapters of a series. In addition, it has been selected to represent Spain in the cinematographic tourism routes.
Evenly, we could see in the front row a sample of Ibizan fashion at the red carpet of this ceremony. On this occasion, the designer Virginia Vald had the pleasure of dressing many of the event’s attendees such as Ana Vide, who was the ambassador of this IV edition of the festival, the actresses Lara Palma, Bárbara Hermosilla, the comedian Eva Soriano, the bloggers Sophie Tatar and Eva García and, of course, the film director and creator of Ibicine, Helher Escribano, who affirms that it has been a challenge to carry out the contest this year, but it has clearly been worth it.
