New festival in Girona for series lovers and professionals: the Plot Series Fest

24/04/16 | The first edition of a festival seeking to become a meeting point for series lovers and professionals in the sector. For six days, the event will be screening internationally acclaimed series at Girona's Municipal Theatre.

From 26 April to 1 May Girona will be hosting the Plot Series Fest, a festival dedicated to sharing and analysing television series. The event, which officially opens at Girona's Municipal Theatre the day after the premiere of the first episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones, aims to showcase the most internationally acclaimed television productions and become a meeting point for professionals and communicators in the sector.

The first edition of the Girona Plot Series Fest kicks off with a screening of the pilot episode of the hit Danish series Borgen, the spearhead of current political fiction, for which reason a very special session preceded by a debate involving six members of the Catalan Parliament has been planned.

On the following days, the Plot festival will be offering big-screen premieres of some episodes of series such as The Catch, House of Cards and Penny Dreadful. In the closing, on 1 May, there will be a showing in La Mercè Auditorium of the first episode of the second season of the online series Les coses grans, in the presence of its creator, Roger Coma, as well as a special episode of the series ¿Qué fue de Jorge Sanz?, an original Movistar+ production directed by David Trueba. Among the festival's other invited guests there will be scriptwriters, television critics, writers and journalists.

The Girona Plot Series Fest was created with the aim of attracting audiences and, at the same time, producing content related to the audiovisual sector. Preparation has already begun for the second edition of the Plot festival next year, which will include a professional congress on the world of television series.
