New York City

BLT_Postcard_NYC_5_1We are delighted to announce that the next Bigas Luna Tribute will take place in New York City. This important event was originally planned for Spring 2020, but had to be rescheduled due to Covid-19. This page is currently in progress and final details will be published closer to the start of the event. We are grateful to Quad cinema and to Durham University for their continued support. 

The main weekend events are now confirmed for 24-26 September 2021 and will include screenings of the entire ‘Iberian Portraits’ trilogy, a cocktail reception and introductions by Bigas Luna specialists. Information about repeat screenings will be confirmed soon.

Over the past seven years the Bigas Luna Tribute has collaborated with over a dozen cinemas and 4 festivals in 18 cities and 7 countries around the world. We have hosted over 70 screenings so far, attracting large audiences and many institutional and commercial sponsorships. The events provide an opportunity to enjoy the important work of one of Spain’s most iconic filmmakers and to learn more about the context in which they were produced, in conversation with some of his collaborators and international academics that have researched the films.
