Panorámica is a platform for the internationalization of independent and authorial Spanish cinema, with a demanding level of curatorship. It gives access to festivals in any country in the world and their programming teams, to a ready-to-play service for online exhibition of its curated catalog.
Festivals and their programmers can choose from the titles of our catalogue individually, but they can also opt for programming itineraries previously prepared by our team of curators, all of them of international reference.
