The Fantastic Film Festival – Galacticat that is celebrated every year at Tàrrega, is the first and only show of fantastic cinema in the lands of Lleida, Catalonia, for all movie lovers in general and those who love science fiction in particular and with a clear instruct and formative vocation.
Galacticat was born as an initiative to recover the universal classics of Sci-Fi for the general public and to deepen into this culture that has articulated the universe of cinema since its inception. Over the years, Galacticat has grown by increasingly involving citizens in this festival of cinema, gradually increasing programmed activities, parties and music shows, live screenings, public assistance and the response of the film industry.
The future goes on to deepen and improve the new activities, such as the GalactiCurt Short Film Contest or the GalactiCon Cosplay contest, which we have inaugurated last year with a fairly successful participation. Every year we learn from our mistakes and our successes, but we always keep in mind that THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
