News Item: One year in ECPV
Published on: January 21, 2022

With the end of 2021 we have been able to take stock of everything that has happened during this year, which has not been little.

Two thousand twenty-two begins with an eye on two thousand twenty-one, the year in which we can say that we have been very lucky since we have grown more than ever. In 2021, although it has been a turbulent year, the ECPV has achieved some of the proposed goals for improving training and growth that we set out for when the course began.

The extension of training to three years, which comes to consolidate a system that differs from the rest of state training, which consist of common years and obsolete systems. The updating of this system arises naturally in order to give students the final result they deserve, the understanding of cinema and the making of a feature film . In addition to the various shootings that take place in the ECPV every year. Focusing on the understanding of cinema as an artistic discipline has always been our base, now we also have the teaching and technical capacity to promote this project.

Talks and Festivals

In 2021 we have expanded our support network for associations and festivals. Being the backbone of cinema is not just a phrase we say, it is a fact that we consolidate every year. There is no room for cinema without festivals and associations that protect and promote it. We maintain the festivals with which we collaborated Zinebi , Zinegoak , Fant , Humor en corto , Animakom or Getxoexpress and we expand the network of festivals to Guionizate with whom we start a collaboration that opens the door at the state level. In addition, as usual, we maintain our support for associations such as EPE-APV , Ibaia or Apika , as well as AEC , which has allowed us to have the visit of the cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe .

We collaborate directly with EAB , but we have also opened a direct collaboration with CIMA (Association of women filmmakers and audiovisual media), the most important association in the entire state, with whom we organized this year the round table "Glass ceiling, sticky floor ” where they discussed the situation of women in the cinema and their future, in collaboration with the Bilbao Bizkaia Film Commission and the Bilbao City Council. In addition, for the second year in a row, we will grant a scholarship to an ECPV student to participate in the COOFILM residency for female filmmakers so that she can develop her first feature film project supported and mentored by some of the most renowned film professionals.

This end of the year, in addition to having the round table, we organized a masterclass with Kepa Sojo on the filmmaker Luis García Berlanga, on the occasion of the author's centenary. It was the last masterclass on the Berlanga year that has been given and both students from the ECPV and the Tartanga Institute participated, with whom we are collaborating more directly this last year and we hope, from now on.

In autumn we also closed a collaboration with Dantzerti Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático y Danza de Euskadi for the participation and exchange of students between the schools.

Training offer

This new school year, in addition to expanding our training offer to three years, we are also adding the make-up and characterization course with the company Balú Hair Trends and Bacon sFX, winner of the Goya award for "El hoyo". We also maintain the Master's Degree in Costume for Film and Theater with the also Goya winner Nerea Torrijos and with the collaboration of the Peris Costumes company, one of the most important costume companies internationally, with which we offer a Peris Scholarship for the best emerging talent.

This year we will also present the Lehen Filma Residence for project development.

Co-produced Projects

One more year the ECPV is committed to emerging talent and the talent of our house. And for yet another year, we are producers and co-producers of a dozen short film projects. Projects that have already begun their journey at top-level festivals such as Sitges or Abycine, the two qualifiers for the Goya awards. This year our alumni have produced and we have co-produced with them one of the most ambitious short films in the Basque Country "Lanbroa" by director Aitzol Saratxaga, a short film with a high participation of students and teachers and which aspires to the highest level after its shooting.

Cinema in Feature Films

In addition to the short films, our alumni have been in almost all the projects shot in Euskadi, "La fortuna", "Intimacy", "Maixabel", "El cuarto pasajero", "El diensal", "La vida padre" or the recent "Una not so simple life” among other projects, positioning our school as the main film school in northern Spain. We are and we want to be the backbone of cinema and from which new projects are born, the best professionals and creative talent that strengthens a cultural industry rich in knowledge.

There are more than two hundred students who trust our training each year to make their passion their way of life. From the ECPV each course we fight to give them the best technical means, the spaces they need and active teachers who encourage their creativity and expand their knowledge. Because we are more than a school, we are cinema.
