Vall de Gallinera will host the weekend of September 23 to 25 the II Conference of Enclave Cinema, an initiative that is part of the global project Enclave Land Arte.

The artistic project was born with the philosophy of promoting the dialogue of the human being with nature to reinterpret the territory through contemporary art. The origin of Enclave Land Art is linked to the creation of artistic itineraries in rural areas, created through a two-week international artist residency.

Within the project, and with the aim of establishing a bridge between the territory and contemporary art, the second edition of Enclave Cinema. This initiative is a platform linked to the audiovisual aspect through the screening of a selection of short films from a guest festival, in this case the Dona i Cinema International Biennial.

The festival reaches its seventh edition in January 2023, will give space to the best films made by women and a series of parallel activities to reflect on the role of women in the film industry, as well as promote other perspectives not always represented in the big screen.

ENCLAVE CINEMA will have the presence throughout the weekend of the festival's directors: Giovanna Ribes and Deborah Micheletti, as well as different directors and personalities linked to the audiovisual world through the Dona i Cinema International Biennial, with the objective of generating a platform for discussion about the proposals among the attending public through debates and participatory colloquiums. It will also have the participation and involvement of the Associació de Dones de la Foradà, the women's group of La Vall de Gallinera.

The Vall de Gallinera Municipal Council considers that these actions dignify and structure culture in the rural environment, considering culture as one of the agents to combat depopulation.
