Films with the “Basque” seal of excellence. The film “20,000 species of bees”, a cinematographic phenomenon that won three Goya awards (best new director, best original screenplay and best supporting actress) and which is also the debut film with the most nominations in history (15 nominations), will be the star of the show in the Cinema section.

With its great success at the last Berlin Festival, where its young performer, Sofía Otero, aged 10, won the Silver Bear, this feature film by Estíbaliz Urresola will share the bill in Bilbao basque FEST with the animated short, also recognised this year with the Goya award in its category, “To bird or not to bird”, by Martín Romero.
