For the last two decades Barcelona has been steadily climbing the list of Europe’s top tourist and traveler destinations, attracting more and more visitors each year. Recently, it has managed to find its way among the likes of London, New York, Rome and Paris and was included in the Forbes top 20 most visited cities in the world for 2012. This, of course, is not without a reason.
Film festivals in Barcelona are as ubiquitous as cafes in Paris or cobblestones in Prague. A true cinephile’s paradise, the city keeps an ever-revolving guest list of A-listers, indie filmmakers, journalists and gawkers glued to their seats year-round with a multitude of festivals ranging from the niche to the mainstream. If you’re in Barcelona, don’t miss your chance to bask in the celluloid glow of one of the world’s most enthusiastic cinema cities.
