Every year l'Alternativa scours Spain for unique films and filmmakers to include in its Panorama section, which showcases a wide range of independent short and feature films being produced (or coproduced) well off the beaten track. We value potential over perfection and look for directors ready and willing to experiment with form and subject matter. Panorama presents original visions by filmmakers pioneering much-needed new ways of working.
Films in the Panorama section compete for the GAC Awards for Best Feature Film Screenplay and Best Short Film Screenplay, awarded by GAC (Guionistes Associats de Catalunya). In addition, one filmmaker will be awarded the Residency Award in l'Alternativa Panorama, which includes a one-week residency at the Belvédère du Rayon Vert hotel, courtesy of l'Alternativa and Les Rencontres Cinématographiques de Cerbère-Portbou.
