In the last Fest edition we started a new period in our history. We decided to hold a presentation event in order to tell you all the new issues for the current edition. The 34th edition is coming and we are having a new presentation event where all forthcoming issues will be checked up. Let’s start.
The five members of the jury that will decide this year’s award winning list in the official sections of both feature and short films, including the Silver Méliès will be:
Jordi Sánchez Navarro: Professor of Information and Communication Science –Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, programmer at the Anima’t within the SitgesFestival. He regularly attends many movie festivals around the country.
Mónica Garcia Massagué: She was a member of the Institut Català de les EmpresesCulturals until 2014. At present she is the manager of the Sitges InternationalFantastic Film Festival Foundation.
Marc Carreté: Cinema producer and director. He presented his first work Asmodexia during the las edition of the Festival. He is also author of short movies like Castidermia (2012) and Mal Cuerpo (2011).
Anna Ishida: North American actress and singer, she won the 2013 award of the festival to the best female performance for the film I am a ghost (H.O. Mendoza, 2012).
Susanna Jiménez: Master degree on movie production. At present, she is Co-production and Fiction manager at TV3-Televisió de Catalunya.
After a long time, we have decided to give a completely new look to our presentation card. As you can see, since last july, the festival has a completely new website fully connected to present times. Giving our audience a user friendly and complete website is the best way we have to thank them their support.
One of the the new issues this year is the screening of a children’s session with three short movies and a medium-length film. The session has been planned for 6 to 12 year-old children and the admission will be totally free. The children’s session will take place on Saturday November 7th in afternoon session at the Sala Gòtica of Molins de Rei.

The presentation event is not the end of it all. Our next appointment will be on October 29th at the FnacTriangle Event Hall, where you will get all the up-to-date confirmed new issues and we will tell you the latest news of the present edition.
