IBAFF 2016 Honorary Award to Pere Portabella

In the seventh edition of the International Film Festival IBAFF of Murcia, the IBAFF Honorary Award 2016 will be awarded to Pere Portabella because of his relevant activity in Spanish cinema for more than five decades. With his production company Films 59, he has produced some of the most emblematic Spanish films, and has directed his own creations, by bringing together the legacy of the avant-garde culture with his search to breach the boundaries of languages.

To accompany this award, the screening of his film shot in 1976, General Report, will open the festival and this 7th Edition will close with the screening of his last film, General Report II. The New Abduction of Europe.

In addition, the IBAFF has organized a retrospective with some of the most representative films of the Catalan filmmaker’s work. The selected films not only have been subjects of study, but also emblematic works that are part of the emotional and sensorial memory of many generations of moviegoers.
