We invite you to be indie with us. And you will ask yourself: What does that mean? It's really easy! We offer you two different ways to Be Indie with Americana.
Enjoy our selection of indie films, which will be playing at the Girona cinemas from February 19th to 22nd, and at the Filmoteca de Catalunya from February 10th to 24th.
We are offering 22 features that will allow you to check out in person the current state of American indie cinema. We will bring you the best indie films of the year as well as undiscovered films from the most promising up-and-coming directors. Do not miss the opportunity to watch them on the big screen!
Quentin Tarantino, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch and Wes Anderson are famous indies. Well, guess what: you could be one too! All you need to do is to take a picture 'Americana style'. What does that mean? It means you can either imitate a famous indie film, a typical American stereotype or even take a selfie being indie. Your imagination and your talent with the camera are the limit!
Once you have your picture, send it to our Facebook contest. All the pictures will be published in our Facebook page, where users will be able to vote for them.
The 3 top photos with the most votes by February 16th at 6pm will win a set of five tickets for the Festival and a DVD of "Short Term 12", the feature that won the Audience Award last year (courtesy of La Aventura). Furthermore, the 4 photos with the most votes by February 22nd will win a Gift Card from Series de Movistar TV (courtesy of Movistar).
Remember: the most "likes" you get for your photo, the more options you have at winning, so you are welcome to share your photo with your friends on all your social platforms! You can do so on Facebook mentioning our profile
(https://www.facebook.com/americanafilmfest), and on Twitter, copying our address @americanaBcn and using the hashtags #feslindie #movistarseries. Contest rules here..
