Mediterranean Summer Special

Join us for a Mediterranean Summer Special film season as we team up with CinemaAttic to bring great independent Spanish cinema to brighten up your staycation, including festival favourites and big winners of the European awards season.

A first-class selection of cinema, from mesmerising, visually stunning cinematic experiences (My Mexican Bretzel) to key films to rethink a political, ethical, social and emotional memory of contemporary Spain. Including the Best European Animated Feature of 2020, set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War (Josep) and a multi-awarded three-hour CinemaAttic experience that will take you to a typical Spanish bar to rediscover an almost forgotten piece of European trade unionism and social history (The Year of the Discovery).

A wave of Mediterranean heat is coming to GFT this summer!
