HIGHLIGHTED

International Festival

Feature film festival

In recent decades, and at one time to the emergence of new technologies that have ended up scanning most of the processes of the film, the documentary has known a notorious and systematic growth around the world. In our country, and for more than one decade, a production before linked almost exclusively to fiction has been swelling their ranks with new topics, new approaches, new geographies, new dilemmas.

It is in this context that FIDBA is proposed as the 1st. International Film Festival dedicated to this genre which films with the same fans - as long as we believe that the forms and the doings of the documentary film are different from those of the fiction - may meet and dialogue among them and with the public. If the documentary is a meeting point for the FIDBA, it is [...]

HARD:LINE International Film Festival aims to present the various faces of extreme cinema.

The question as to what is meant by the term “extreme” can be understood by looking at the content of our wide selection of fantastic films. “Extreme” is often defined by an explicit splatter aesthetic but it can also be represented by unusual story-telling methods or an exotic visual language. Thus, we are meticulously selecting such examples that could be important in the future of the genre. We have not set any boundaries in our search and whether a film is a pearl of the independent scene, fun splatter or no-brainer, H:LIFF loves special films!

HARD:LINE International Film Festival is no warehouse festival where the priority is to show as many films as possible but rather [...]

Festival collaborator and qualifier for the Goya Awards 2023.
After holding the 2021 edition in a hybrid format through Filmin, with almost 24,000 viewings and in auditoriums on the Island as the restrictions caused by Covid-19 allowed, IBZCF22 has returned to face-to-face with its two parallel objectives of bringing to our island the bravest and most cryptic auteur cinema, and at the same time, as a markedly territorial festival, quality independent cinema that will reach commercial theaters on the peninsula, but never to Ibiza.
We believe in committed auteur films, with the necessary points of view, which can move in substance and form to the margins of the norms of commercial cinema, with total creative freedom.
