Lomographers, film lovers, professionals and amateur movie makers gathered at the Palafox Theather to enjoy the Big Night of the Lomographic Cinema.
After many months of hard work, The LomoKino Premiere gave us an evening of superb analogue films, cocktails, music and almost 1000 people, from analogue lovers to celebrities, who got together in this amazing night, with a special guest of honor: The Lomokino.
The night began with a runway of celebrities and VIP, walking though the red carpet and giving us their best pose, while waiting for the screening to begin.
The international atmosphere of our event reached its peak with the presence of Matthias Fiegl and Sally Bibawy, two of the founders of Lomography, who also gave the Award for Best Amateur Shortfilm.
The voiceover of the film was made by the well known host Monica Chaparro, who was responsible for introducing each film in the voices of characters such as Esperanza Aguirre, the Duchess of Alba and Sara Carbonero. Also we some members of the Theather Company Sala Mañana, by some members of the amateur theater company, Room Malasaña.
We had our own celebrities, comfortably seated in the VIP area, along with filmmakers and the staff involved in the different films.
After the screening and the awards ceremony, we had an amazing cocktail offered by The Macallan and everybody could enjoy themselves with music of DJ Mr. Beam.
Filmmakers, both professionals and amateurs,showed us the magic created with the LomoKino camera and proved that the Lomokino is the perfect tool to create stories and emotions.
