A festival running for 365 days

To understand this strategic commitment, we must look at the context of the San Sebastian Festival: the building housing its offices is also home to the institutions which are our travelling companions in this undertaking: the Tabakalera cultural programme, the Filmoteca Vasca and the EQZE itself.

These institutions jointly organise the Nest section (the International Film Students Meeting), as well as the Ikusmira Berriak residencies programme, the development of its projects and the aforementioned conceptualisation and setting in motion of the EQZE.

But the overlapping and collaborations between the institutions don’t stop there: they touch on cinema programmes throughout the year, turning the Festival into an event lasting for all 365 days of the year.

On the one hand, the Tabakalera cinema has a public screen shared by the institutions in which the Festival participates with its Zabaltegi Tabakalera screenings (also in its extended version going by the name of Zabaltegi Tabakalera Plus) and with the Nest short films. But these synergies also affect the guests: filmmakers and professionals who give tutorials, masterclasses, workshops or visits shared by the institutions. Lastly, the Festival, Tabakalera, EQZE and the Filmoteca Vasca also join forces to carry out research related to cinematography, such as the Festival’s Zinemaldia 70. All possible stories archive or Zine, the publication on research into Basque cinema.

In 2019, when the EQZE has only been in existence for a year, the University of the Basque Country has recognised the EQZE post-graduate courses as master’s degrees with an equivalent academic value and, where appropriate, the same professional effects as those actually taught at the University.
