Italy vs Spain: Film and Food Challenge

About Italy vs Spain: Film and Food Challenge

The Mediterranean Derby. The mother of all film contests.

An evening of Italian and Spanish short films go head to head! This September -part of Scalarama 2019- CinemaAttic has challenged the good people of Cinetopia to a film and food duel. Each exhibitor will show a selection of short films and one traditional dish from each country, 3 shorts from Spain selected by CinemaAttic collective and 3 shorts from Italy picked by Cinetopia. Will Cinetopia take up the gauntlet? Well, of course they will, e con gusto! The challenge is as follows:

3 shorts from each country - Small food tasters will be available - 1 dish from Spain and 1 dish from Italy - The audience gives each film rating (Between 1 and 5) - Two awards to be won - Best Country and Best Film
Tapas vs Cicchetti
Estrella vs Moretti

CinemaAttic calls on its loyal supporters to come and help us overcome this challenge. We fear nothing from any Rossellini, Antonioni, Fellini or Tornatore they want to throw at us.

Cinetopia extends their call to arms to the whole of Edinburgh to come and show support for their love of Italian cinema, and we won’t be afraid of any
Almodovars, Sauras, Erices or Buñuels they want to swing at us.

The Venue will be CinemaAttic’s old HQ @ Old St Paul’s in Jeffrey Street.
The date is 13th of September 2019. Doors will open at 7pm, aiming to start at 7:30.

Only one can be left alive. This is the Battle Royale of Edinburgh indie exhibitors.

Given the strong interest and film appetite after a long summer without events, both organisations recommend booking in advance. Buy your tickets via Citizenticket from 20/8/2019.

See you at the movies!
