We discovered this thanks to the great article in the Scottish daily The National thanks to Greg Russell. The Cinemaattic group has put together a festival that’s going to show a selection of the most successful Basque short films as an homage to the 20th anniversary of the Kimuak agency, which was created to help promote the creation of Basque short films at an international level.
It’s quite interesting to read the opinions the members of the Cinemaattic group have about this organization. This is in part because when they talk about Kimuak, they also discuss the “Basque case“, which we’ve mentioned on many occasions, and which could serve as a role model for other places, like Scotland itself.
Along with the info from The National, we’d also like to mention the presentation the Cinemaattic group created about this festival for their website, where they explain their perspective on this facet of the “Basque case”.
We’re looking forward to the moment when the agreements between the Basque Autonomous Community, the Community of Navarre, and the Northern Basque Country allow these policies to reach the whole of the Basque Country and Basque productions to collaborate.
