This past week, I had the pleasure of attending the Sevilla Film Festival to check out cool, modern artwork, and most obviously, watch indie films. Some of these have been pre-selected for the Oscars or premiered at the prestigious, celebrity-ridden Cannes Film Festival in France. So many movies from different genres and selections are offered from all over Europe, and luckily for me, English subtitles are provided for most. Even better? The thrifty price of 2,50 euros per movie! (I got the season ticket pass of 8 movies for 20 euros, which was a great investment. Typically they are about 3 euros, though.)
Of course, with these indie films, it is always a hit or a miss with me, since they are either unforgettably amazing/inspiring/meaningful/etc. etc. or the message is lost in translation because it is just too indie for me to understand. Out of the three movies and five short films I watched, I surprisingly enough enjoyed more than I thought I would. However, if you get the chance, try to attend before this festival becomes more popular and prices go up--because trust me, I think that this event in Sevilla will soon become very well-known!
