June 15-17, 2018 | Anthology Film Archives | 32 2nd Avenue, New York, NY. 


SF MAY 2018

LA OLA is a showcase of the best independent contemporary films from Spain. The showcase celebrates its fourth edition, creating a bridge between Spain and the Americas to bring groundbreaking cinema to New York, Los Angeles, and, now, Mexico City. LA OLA offers a curated selection of critically-acclaimed films, selected and awarded at the most remarkable European film festivals. Despite their critical success, these films have struggled to gain access to the traditional distribution channels. LA OLA aims to create a bridge between Spain and the U.S. to address this problem, giving exposure to all these extraordinary works on this side of the Atlantic.

LA OLA is organized by La Panda Productions, Playtime Audiovisuales, and Rocío Mesa, in partnership with Spain Fresh; with the principal support of Acción cultural Española AC/E and SPAIN Arts & Culture; co-presented in partnership with MUBI and Curtocircuito; and with the collaboration of the Consulate General of Spain in New York and Embassy of Spain in the United States.

The main idea of this OPEN CALL is to give the opportunity to one artist or collective living in NYC to present its work to the American public following SPAIN FRESH principles and the main theme of SPAIN FRESH for its 2014 international program: REMAKE (concepts as remembrance, pastiche, amnesia, etc) present nowadays in several artistic disciplines. 

The aim of this open call is to select a proposal from a Spanish creator living in NYC and presented to the public in addition to the multidisciplinary program of SPAIN FRESH that has been taking place at NYU’s King Juan Carlos Center during Spring 2014. In this festival, SPAIN FRESH has programmed a series of events with fresh music, photography and film portraying the current trends in Spanish culture.

Spain Fresh y Doze Magazine lanzan conjuntamente una convocatoria para la selección de 5 piezas fotográficas de artistas con nacionalidad española para ser incluidas en la sección “Doze Magazine” de la exposición colectiva “New Spanish Photography_Visions beyond borders”, que tendrá lugar durante el mes de Mayo en el NYU’s King Juan Carlos Center de Nueva York.


Sobre la exposición y su temática:


Con esta exposición queremos construir un retrato contemporáneo del panorama de la fotografía española actual. Más en concreto, queremos mostrar la visión de varios artistas sobre el paisaje al otro lado de nuestras fronteras, un paisaje natural o urbano, siempre plasmado desde una perspectiva crítica o emocional a través de la fotografía.


Los artistas y sus obras seleccionadas construirán una línea narrativa que recorre universos y rincones, que a veces se tornan familiares y cercanos, y otras nos trasladan casi a galaxias remotas. Un paseo por realidades, mundos y paisajes a través del objetivo de diferentes artistas con un principal nexo común: SU ENORME CALIDAD Y PROYECCIÓN.
