In this installment of our series concerning film archives’ offers during the COVID-19 crisis, we will discuss what ACE members from the Iberian Peninsula are organizing for their audiences.
LA CINEMATECA PORTUGUESA has created “Gestos & Fragmentos”, a selection of films, museum pieces and records of the life in the Cinematheque. It is described as an enhanched version of the already existing initiative named “Cinemateca Digital” (that will still remain on the website). There are four different sections: films to see this week (a series of features from Portoguese Cinema with a temporary availability), a larger Cinemateca Júnior, “O museu vai a casa” which displays a series of pre-cinema objects from their collection and “Textos & Imagens” dedicated to reflections raised by items from the collection of their Documentation and Information Center.

LA FILMOTECA DE CATALUNYA has put its film, documentary, graphic and pedagogical collections at the disposal of its audience. It is also important to highlight two projects: a restropective dedicated to the filmmaker Pere Portabella to “Dies curts” an initiative to highlight the short film format featuring works from experienced filmmakers as well as more emerging ones.
