The priority of any regional film archive is to recover and preserve the films that pertain to it geographically. This is why Catalan cinema is one of our main objectives. In this collection you will find a significant part of the history of cinema in Catalonia from its origins through to the present day.
The films that make up this collection, particularly those in the fiction section, represent the first step towards the creation of a Catalan cinema catalogue. Due to its complexity, this is a long-term project that will need to be undertaken on a continuous basis over the years. It is an open collection in terms of both the cinema that is currently being produced and added to our collections and the films produced in the past that the Filmoteca locates and recovers.
