PHILOSOPHY

Festivalito La Palma- Stars Film Festival of the Canary Islands  stands up for a new kind of film festival: a cinematographic encounter and meeting-camp where creativity, the sharing of ideas and experiences, and coexistence for a whole week, play a key role as important as its strong bet for other ways of watching, making, and understanding cinema.

Our first stage as a festival was completely dedicated to digital cinema, and the second one to artisan productions, or small cinema. Now it's the time for Festivalito to enter a new phase, the stage of Stars Film Festival.

With this name we are honouring the vastness of the sky vault, which we are privileged to enjoy each night from the island of La Palma.

Now, through cinema, we want to ask ourselves the same questions that arise when we look at the starry sky:

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we go from here?

We want to explore the Universe and ourselves through the seventh art, through music, through science and spiritual activities.

“There comes a time when you need to drop off the ragged clothes shaped as our bodies, and forget about the trails taking us to the same old places.

This is the time of passage.

And, if we don't even dare to embrace it, we are going to stay forever on the side of ourselves.”

Fernando Pessoa

"When crisis hits, only imagination is more important than knowledge."

Albert Einstein

 

"Dreamers are the world's saviors"

James Allen

"I´d like to say: I deeply love film; I love catching ideas; and I love to meditate. I love enlivening unity.

And I think the enlivening of unity brings a better better life."

David Lynch

 

"This world needs people eager to learn, full of unique and different ideas; passionate people engaged with what they do. People able to think by themselves and to tread new roads and new ways of doing things."                                     

Cristina Romero
