Ronda International Festival, new addition in Spain

Ronda International Festival, Political Cinema for the Twenty-First Century, was conceived in order to give a twist to cinema and politics, and to be an event aimed primarily at a young public, who are more adept at handling the new forms, codes and references used to decribe the real changes in the language and obligations of the citizens of this century.
In this new festival our first major task is to encourage a lively three-way dialogue between the filmmakers, who will attend with their films, politicians open to debate and a public that will be mostly made up of film and high school university students invited to the festival.
