COPEAM@ La Mostra de València

Valencia, 24 October 2023

From October 19 to 29, the 38th Mostra de València took place: the Mediterranean cinema festival member of COPEAM. For 10 days, the theatres of Babel, La Rambleta and Filmoteca screened films of all genres from various countries such as Palestine, Italy, Portugal or Lebanon.

In addition to maintaining the usual sections, the Festival has recovered the figure of Helena Cortesina as a pioneering director, the discovery of Edgar Pera as the last punk of European cinema, as well as the awarding of the Palm of Honor to Paolo Sorrentino.

We took part in the event with a selection of “A Première Vue” which was on screen with the winners of the 2023 edition of the APV Prize: Tayot 24 (ESAC-Tunisia), winner of the TV5MONDE Grand Prize, Rai Rayi (LabDZ - Institut French of Algeria) which won the MUCEM Youth Prize, Mom (ALBA – Líbanon) awarded with the Rai Cinema Prize, and the short film from ESAV- Marrakech Ayyur awarded last May as part of the CINEF at the Cannes Film Festival.
