Every year l'Alternativa scours the country for unique films to include in its Panorama section, which showcases a wide range of independent short and feature films produced (or coproduced) in Spain. We value potential over perfection and look for directors ready and willing to experiment with form and subject matter. Panorama presents compelling visions by filmmakers pioneering new ways of working that offer fresh insights into the world around us.
Films in this 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.
