Founded in 2006, Inicia Films is an independent Spanish production company based in Barcelona. After many years of being involved in the audiovisual production industry, Valérie Delpierre decided to create her own company with the aim of developing projects, focused on international co-productions and the development of new talent.

Our feature films, short films and documentaries have been selected and awarded in many international festivals, including the Berlinale (Best Opera Prima Award 2017 for Carla Simón’s Estiu 1993) and La Semaine de la Critique of Cannes (Leica Discovery Prize 2017 for Laura Ferrés’ The Disinherited).

We have produced documentaries with different European production companies and with the support of TV channels such as RTVE, TVC, ARTE, ZDF and CBC as well as regional, national and European institutions.

At this moment, we are developing two fiction feature films, two hybrid short films and a television documentary with the support of TVE.
