CINEFORUM WITH…

Núria Campreciós
SIN FIN CINEMA
Film curator & Communications manager

Núria Campreciós from SIN FIN CINEMA will be hosting this Cine Forum about Princesses and the stimulating career of one of the most praised award-winner filmmakers in Spain, Fernando León de Aranoa, whose personal touch, closer gaze and sensitivity had captivated audiences and film critics around the world. The evening will finish with an exciting and warm debate with the audience addressing the issues depicted on the film: women’s’ roles in contemporary society in Spain, prostitution, immigration, racism, sexism and violence against women amongst many more!

Núria graduated in 2003 in Arts History (BA) from the University of Barcelona with an emphasis in contemporary arts, film criticism and cinema history and theory. A year later, she obtained her Postgraduate Degree in Cultural Management and started working for several museums and contemporary art galleries in Barcelona. In 2007, she followed her passion for films and moving image and started working for Drac Màgic in Barcelona, coordinating and programming cultural projects in the audiovisual sector. During four years, she was programme manager at the Barcelona International Women’s Film Festival.
In 2010, she moved to London to commence a Masters degree in Film Curating at the London Film School, from which she recently graduated.
Now she is absolutely devoted to SIN FIN CINEMA, a London based multidisciplinary arts organization, specialized in Spanish cinema, with a focus on moving image creativity. One of her primordial desires is to integrate video making, filmmakers, exhibition and film curating whilst developing public platforms for the close readings of the image in contemporary society and culture. She really believes that on doing so (and breaking a few walls along the way) other cinemas will reach the audience and the recognition they deserve; it’s all about (re)discovering voices (new and old). But especially, the ones that come from women’s’ creativity and gaze, are perhaps (she says), the ones that must be listened the most.
