The great novelty of this 2017 is that the Festival opens a second headquarters; the Sala Gòtica. This historical and versatile space will be used to screen sessions of films and shorts out of competition, retrospective and it will also be where the first edition of the Molins Horror Games will be held, among other activities. For the Festival it represents a new challenge and for the spectators a new space, more integrated into the city, where you can watch quality movies for free, as all sessions will be without cost.
La Gòtica is one of the rooms of the former Requesens Palace, ordered to be built by Galceran de Requesens and Santacoloma in the middle of the 15th century and registered in the Register of Cultural Assets of National Interest of the Generalitat. This space is part of the city’s facilities to host institutional and cultural events, it was rehabilitated in 2014 in a joint effort between the Spanish State, the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Molins de Rei Town Council.
At the presentation of the 2017 Molins Horror Film Festival that will take place in mid-September, we will specify some of the titles and acts that will fill the grid of activities of this new headquarters. This new location is an addition to our usual headquarters which still is at the La Peni Theater from Molins de Rei.
