Tres Festival. Film Cycle
Besides aiming to be a meeting point and forum for debate, the Tres Festival includes in its programme ARTR3S, a parallel cultural activities programme based on the arts: music, exhibitions and films, all concerning the world of Mediterranean literature.
‘From Word to Image: narrating realities’.
In the context of the Tres Festival and with the collaboration of the Euro-Arab Foundation, the Three Cultures Foundation proposes an in-depth look at the world of letters via a cinema programme dedicated to literature, specifically three films based on books whose authors, in two cases, are taking part in our literary event.
This a way to familiarise the public with literature, thanks to the stories born on paper which take on a new dimension when transferred to the screen.
Place: Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies.
