TABACA FILM FEST

the Mythological Film Festival of the Pyrenees

VALL CARDÓS

 “The fantastic emerges from reality like the moon over a misty swamp”

Kenji Mizoguchi
The concept of the Festival is born out of our passion for Pallars Sobirà, a secluded area of the Catalan Pyrenees, for its stories and legends, and for cinema. Throughout countless conversations over the years, our concern for preserving the most mysterious legacy of this territory has grown to finally become the Tabaca Film Fest.
 
It is indeed a land full of myths and legends: water nymphs, elves, witches, bears… but also of stories passed down from one generation to another that are not documented anywhere. And every corner of the world has its own Yeti, its own mermaid, its own werewolf, its own mountain guardian, in short, its own mythological imaginary.
 
With the Tabaca Film Fest, we want to recover all these stories from the Pallars, the Pyrenees and elsewhere, through the art we know best, cinema. We believe that this Festival can bring together several values in which we believe: high quality cinema and preservation of the historical-mythological legacy, in an incomparable natural setting.
