With four films and various off-screen panels, the Sonidero section covers a diverse global music scene”
Sonidero, our programming dedicated to artists and their music scene, has positioned itself over the years as one of the most popular of our film festival. In 2020, Sonidero offers an expansive selection of films, which encompasses several musical genres—from Cuban Son to Anglo-Saxon Rock—and various activities—including female bands and urban dance battles—whose goal is to extend the experience of documentary film beyond the cinema screen.
