La Fura dels Baus will be featured at Sitges 2017’s closing gala

The show will pay tribute to different fantastic film legends

 

The closing ceremony of the 50th Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia will have a special headliner and stage: La Fura dels Baus Theater Company will be the stars of the show, which will take place at La Fragata Square, below Sitges’ emblematic Church, commonly known in the area as The Point. The event will be on Saturday October 14th at 21:30.

 

The celebration of the Festival’s 50 anniversary will have its high point during the closing gala ceremony, which will be changing its format, stage and style this year. In an effort to share an event as special as this one with the public and the town of Sitges, the gala will be open to everyone. The show is produced by La Xarxa for Comunicació Local, which will be broadcasting live on local television stations and via channel 159 on Movistar +.

 

The gala will be featuring La Fura del Baus, who have prepared a show revolving around different figures and icons from fantastic film, very much in line with the company. During the gala, some of the most important awards for the Festival’s 50th anniversary edition will be presented. The remaining prizes will be awarded at the Festival’s closing session, which will be held in the Auditorio with the screening of The Lodgers, also on Saturday but at 20:00.


The closing gala is just one of the many events that the Festival has put together this year to celebrate its 50th edition. This Thursday 28th, the film competition’s organization will be paying tribute to its founders at an event to be held in the Prado, where the same film that opened the Festival in 1968 will be screened: the Soviet science fiction production Aelita. In addition to this event, over the next few days Sitges will be hosting exhibitions, other commemorative events and presenting publications highlighting the first 50 years of the Festival.
