Art Film in Barcelona: Filmoteca de Catalunya

Opened less than a year ago, the new headquarters of the Cinémathèque de Catalunya looks with immensity in the heart of Raval. Who knew the old Chinatown, now barely recognize the streets that surround the new promenade. Actually, more and more tourists come to the area, full of hotels, trendy bars and now, good cinema.

I recommend two film series that cast interesting films during this October and next month:

12th International Film Festival Barcelona Gay and Lesbian, until 28 October.

This year the festival talk about multicultural issues , Islam and Muslim youth, with many films that are difficult to see in commercial displays.

Here are some films released this week:
