Valladolid prepares for the 2024 Goya Awards with a record number of nominees
Just a few days before Valladolid hosts the 38th edition of the Goya Awards, the city is getting ready to celebrate the most important night of Spanish cinema. Urban exhibitions, screenings of the films that are up for awards, meetings with nominees, special lighting in emblematic buildings and giant replicas of the Goya Awards throughout the capital of Pisuerga are some of the preliminary activities that residents and visitors will be able to enjoy, free of charge.
This was announced today by the Mayor of Valladolid, Jesús Julio Carnero, and the President of the Film Academy, Fernando Méndez-Leite, at the press conference they held together with the Vice-President of the institution, Rafael Portela, and the Councillor for Tourism, Events and City Brand, Blanca Jiménez Cuadrillero.
“Nearly 14,000 free tickets will be made available to the citizens of Valladolid to enjoy the different moments surrounding the Goya experience in Valladolid, of which 1,800 will be for the school screenings, 1,500 for the meetings with nominees and 8,400 for the screenings at the Carrión Theatre, which on 10 February will broadcast the ceremony live for 600 people. On the red carpet of the Feria de Valladolid there will also be space for hundreds of people, in addition to the presence in the auditorium of the associations and representative entities of the city”, Jesús Julio Carnero highlighted.
“We have a record number of activities that will allow the inhabitants of this city to get closer to the great celebration of our cinema. The Academy’s aim is not only to offer a memorable gala, but also to make our host city feel proud to host the Goya Awards 2024. And we want to achieve this not only on Saturday 10 February, but from today and throughout the dozens of activities that we have designed”, stressed Méndez-Leite.
