The Festival closer to the citizens of Sitges

The Town Council encourages new actions to bring the Festival back closer to the citizens of Sitges with proposals for all ages

As an initiative of the Sitges Town Hall, in 2011 different actions will be carried out to bring the SITGES - International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia back closer to the citizens of Sitges and to create new synergies. For this reason, the Town Council has been working with the Festival’s organization to program new activities involving Sitgetans.  

One of these proposals is the recovery of the theming of 1r de Maig St. from Indústria Square to the Passeig de la Ribera Promenade, thanks to the collaboration of the Jack Daniel’s company. The street will be decorated like an upside-down cemetery and it´s whole transformation will begin on Monday for it to be ready on October 5th.  

Another action will be organized by the Sitges Hospitality Industry Association. During the 10 days of the Festival, 21 of its members will be offering special fantastic menus. All the participating establishments and their suggestions are on a flier that will be distributed at the restaurants themselves and the Festival’s different screening and activity points.   

This year there is a new collaboration between the town’s schools and the FECES (Federation of Storekeepers and Businessmen of Sitges). So these last few days, students from the Agnès de Sitges, Maria Ossó, Esteve Barrachina, Miquel Utrillo, Escola Pia and Escaan schools have been working on drawings inspired by the fantastic genre and starting this weekend they can be seen in the show windows of the different businesses participating in this initiative. In this joint action between schools and storekeepers, nearly 600 drawings have been produced.

Along the same lines, there was a proposal for high school students from Sitges’ different educational centers to attend a free screening of the movie Artificial Intelligence (Steven Spielberg, 2001) and to do a guided tour led by someone from the Festival’s management of the exhibition on the film in the Miramar Building. On the other hand, students from 8 to 14 will have an opportunity to attend a student´s screening of the animated film The Great Bear.

All of these initiatives are added to the Jack Daniel’s Zombie Walk, held for the third year straight and bringing a spectacular parade of zombies and other gloomy characters to the center of Sitges on Friday October 14th
