FF Cinema is a project of the Cinema Group of the Casal de la Font d’en Fargues Association that aims to disseminate and debate audiovisual creations, especially those with more innovative and / or critical content than often they do not have access to commercial distribution and screening circuits.
To achieve these objectives, FF Cinema periodically holds screenings and forums of films in original, documentary and audiovisual versions in the large hall of the Casal de la Font d’en Fargues.
In these times when cinema is ceasing to be a collective act and becoming an individual experience, FF Cinema wants to be a meeting place to enjoy in groups, quality screenings on the big screen, in an environment of stimulation to debate and cultural exchange of experiences.
