Opera Prima

2011 | Documentary - short film | 13min | 35mm | Color


One morning like any other, a teacher of an elementary school surprises her students with an exciting new: we are going to make a film. But, “what do we need to make a film?” “Makeup! Customs! Popcorns!” – answer the students fast and excited. Step by step, the kids learn how to make a film, which are the most complex parts and which they enjoy most. Some of them enjoy acting, some prefer to draw and build things, some like better to touch the camera with their own hands. But they all agree on something: they need to work thinking of the premiere.

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.
