The Mediterranean Derby. The mother of all film contests.
An evening of Italian and Spanish short films go head to head! This September -part of Scalarama 2019- CinemaAttic has challenged the good people of Cinetopia to a film and food duel. Each exhibitor will show a selection of short films and one traditional dish from each country, 3 shorts from Spain selected by CinemaAttic collective and 3 shorts from Italy picked by Cinetopia. Will Cinetopia take up the gauntlet? Well, of course they will, e con gusto! The challenge is as follows:
3 shorts from each country – Small food tasters will be available – 1 dish from Spain and 1 dish from Italy – The audience gives each film rating (Between 1 and 5) – Two awards to be won – Best Country and Best Film
Tapas vs Cicchetti
Estrella vs Moretti
CinemaAttic calls on its loyal supporters to come and help us overcome this challenge. We fear nothing from any Rossellini, Antonioni, Fellini or Tornatore they want to throw at us.
Cinetopia extends their call to arms to the whole of Edinburgh to come and show support for their love of Italian cinema, and we won’t be afraid of any Almodovars, Sauras, Erices or Buñuels they want to swing at us.
Only one can be left alive. This is the Battle Royale of Edinburgh indie exhibitors.
