A lot of you would be asking what is Iberodocs?Iberodocs2 is a film festival based in Edinburgh, last year, 2014 was its first edition and this 2015 Iberodocs2 is going to be in Glasgow as well!Iberodocs try to show the culture and way of life of the Ibero-american countries through the cine, what it is itself a fantastic idea has learn a movie is a good way to learning a language and get engage with it, all the films are in original version but they have the english subtitles (for the not that confidence ones), this year it is going to be focus in a particular region in Spain, Galicia, which is lovely and a bit unknown among foreign people so it will be a great chance to get to know it a bit better, as Galicia has a lot of things to offer and it is not the typical Spanish holidays destination and is a bit different from the all sun and sand most people look for on a holidays, but if you like the adventure, to enjoy the landscape, the good food and you do not mind the weather…Galicia could be your next destination so give it a go, check it out through the films.
This year, Iberodocs2 will take place from the 14th of May till 17th in Edinburgh and May the 23rd and 24th in Glasgow, and in Edinburgh the film festival will be hold at the filmhouse, city centre so no excuses!
