'Magic Mountain', Best Documentary at the 26th DocsBarcelona


DocsBarcelona has delivered today to the CCCB the nine awards of its 26th edition, in which 26 feature films and 11 short films have been programmed. Today, in its provisional balance, it has reached 40,000 spectators, counting those attending the event and those watching on Filmin, its online window. The average number of spectators per day in the cinemas so far is 3,300, an increase of 10% compared to 2022. "We have proposed a transformative programme, both on and off screen, which has opted to open up the complexity of patriarchal violence to public debate. With the crowded screenings and hundreds of documentary professionals who have visited us to make their next projects a reality, we have once again confirmed the passion for documentary film, both in terms of audiences and in terms of creation and production. And this gives us the energy we need to continue working to make DocsBarcelona a true home for all kinds of audiences," explains Anna Petrus, the event's new artistic director.
