Event details

Nocturna International Fantastic Film Festival
26 May  -1 June  

Nocturna, festival of gore, fantasy and cult cinema brings us a plethora of classic cult movies along with a few recent gems like Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem, starring Christopher Waltz as an outcast computer hacker who is hired to solve the so-called Zero Theorem which will reveal the meaning of life. As usual with Gilliam, it's a layered, quirky, visual feast. Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Melanie Thierry also star. The vast majority of the movies are in original version with spanish subtitles.


The festival divides itself into numerous sections:


NOCTURNA OFICIAL FANTÁSTICO (NOFC) The meat and potatoes section, comprising a range of genres such as thrillers, science fiction, horror and animation.


NOCTURNA DARK VISIONS (DARK) Competition section dedicated to ground-breaking, innovative new releases.


NOCTURNA MADNESS (MAD) Competition section where the films stand out for their violence and/or black humor. Good atmosphere at this one.


SHOTS Competition section dedicated to short movies in the genre. Apart from the main categories there are a host of other activities taking place in parallel with the festival, including interviews with renowned directors, classic fantasy films, comics and animation.
