The Festival

    The brain is the featured star of this festival, which includes the ninth edition of the Solé Tura Award. The Brain Film Fest combines screenings, talks and workshops to encourage audiovisual creation and raise awareness of different aspects of the brain, both its amazing capabilities and the diseases and conditions that threaten it. With this goal in mind, the festival will bring together cinema, neurology, psychiatry, philosophy, sociology, technology and artistic production alongside other cultural and scientific fields.

    Initiated and organized by Pasqual Maragall Foundation and co-organized by Uszheimer Foundation and the production company Minimal Films.
