Last Thursday 7th of October, Terrassa had the honor of receiving Valladolid City of Film and Bilbao City of Design representatives and creatives: Guillaume Rousseau, Juan Pardo, Asier Larrinaga and Saioa Eibar. The nomination of both cities’ creatives for Muncunill Awards 2021 culminated with the victory of the Basque project Fair Saturday Foundation in the cultural category.
Our guests visited the city with its focal point, Jordi Hernàndez, the Councilor for Social Economy and Innovation, Universities, Tourism and Audiovisual Projects, Josep Forn, and Audiovisual Projects Program Director, Pietat Hernandez.
During the day, they visited landmarks related to the city’s culture. The first one was Parc Audiovisual de Catalunya, a relevant film studio in which international productions as A Monster Calls (J. A. Bayona, 2016) or The Photographer of Mauthausen (Mar Tarragona, 2018) have been shoot. Then, they went to the National Museum of Science and Technique of Catalonia to show the industrial origins and architecture of the city. Once they had discovered the past, they traveled to the future with Zero District, a project in development to give visibility to the social and cultural actions of the city.
The last parade was the celebration of the Muncunill Awards for Innovation 2021. Valladolid was nominated with the project Andén 47, represented by Juan Pardo, and Bilbao with the Fair Saturday Foundation, represented by Saioa Eibar. The Basque initiative received the award for its work as a referent of cultural and social innovation.
The guests visited the city with Josep Forn (Councilor for Social Economy and Innovation, Universities, Tourism and Audiovisual Projects), Pietat Hernandez (Program Director of Audiovisual Projects), Cristina Brandner (Manager of Parc Audiovisual de Catalunya) and Jordi Hernàndez (focal point of Terrassa City of Film).
