This Wednesday was the opening reception of IberoDocs, the Ibero-American Documentary Film Festival of Scotland, and for the fourth year running, we met to celebrate. Every year we feel more and more like an expanding family, as the Festival grows with each documentary that gets screened.

As the curtain falls on the BFI Southbank Pedro Almodóvar season, BritEs reflects on some of the highlights. Through this two-month series, coinciding with the international release of Almodóvar’s Oscar-nominated ‘Julieta’ (2016), BFI have brought us closer than ever to the contexts, concepts and realities of the icon behind the lens. With an expansive selection of screenings, guest appearances, lectures and discussions, the British Film Institute have delivered an immersive journey through the remarkable spheres of experience which give shape to the Almodrama we see on screen. This outstanding collaboration of voices, experiences and perspectives will go down as the ultimate tribute to an unforgettable career.

Ninety minutes with Pepe Mujica… delivered at his own pace. Ninety minutes, at life’s natural rhythm; that time passing as a plant grows, those minutes spent waiting for the maté to be ready, those hours rolling by as you cruise in that old-fashioned VW Beetle. Never going over eighty km/h… what’s the rush?
For another year IberoDocs Film Festival is back to celebrate its 3rd edition having a great programme, special events, opening and closing receptions, and parties.
