About

Offside Fest. Cinema Fora de Joc

We defend that football has to be understood from its sports perspective, but also as a social and cultural phenomenon. It’s an expression of the greatness of humanity, and the films we show tell human stories that reveal this greatness.

We are the first independent festival of this type in Spain, and we are associated with similars events in Berlín (11mm), Nueva York (Kicking & Screening), París (La Lucarne) or Río de Janeiro (Cinefoot).

During the first three editions, we have screened influential films such as Gascoigne, Les rebelles du Foot, Democracia em preto e branco or The Class of 92.

The festival has also received the visit of very special guests, such as former football player Carlos Caszely, former player, manager and president of Nottingham Forest Frank Clark, and former Egypt manager Bob Bradley.

“Some people say that football has nothing to do with our life, with the most essentials things. 

I don’t know how much do this people know about life. But I’m sure of one thing: they don’t know a thing about football”.
