Over the last 13 years, Molins de Rei Horror Film Festival has counted on Albert Galera’s invaluable direction. We wish him all the best in his new future projects and we absolutely thank him for the great work he has been carrying out.
When Albert became a member of the Festival’s staff he showed the reference of a passionate career connected with all the facets of cinema. No one was going to lose; for 13 years he has shown that having him with us was the best option. These have been exciting years in which the cinematographic quality of the Festival has soared and the passion that he himself transmits and claims has been on top as a non-stop explosion of positive sensations. Everybody is replaceable, of course, but you can never change anyone’s personal and non-transferable qualities of which our friend Albert has got more than enough. Thank you man, you know that you can always count on us.
