The thematic axis of the 16th edition of the FIC-CAT is Cinema and Literature. Taking advantage of this duality, which aims to give visibility to the relationship between Catalan Cinema and Literature, the Festival has decided to award a double Honorary Award in this edition. The main reason is its direct and explicit link with the thematic axis, and the ideal people to receive this award are Jaume Cabré, writer and screenwriter, and Antoni Verdaguer, director. In addition, both have formed a professional tandem on many occasions and, at the same time, they have been united by a good friendship since 1983. In fact, Verdaguer has made a documentary about the writer, entitled Jaume Cabré la música of the words and the world premiere will take place at the FIC-CAT, specifically on Sunday, June 2 at 9:30 p.m., when the Honorary Award will be presented.
