Tribute: ‘Pop Ràpid’ 10th Anniversary

One of the most sacred sessions in this festival. In the section “Tribute, we have tributed important figures of the catalan television such as Chicho Ibáñez Serrador, Maria Aurèlia Capmany, Plats Bruts o El Tricicle. And in this 8th edition we couldn’t lower our standards.

The catalan series ‘Pop Ràpid’ was one of the first indie series recorded in Spain. In 2011 TV3 premiered this comedy about two friends -Fede i Albert- that had a music group called The Frederics, a group that played “pop ràpid” while trying to succeed in the Barcelona music industry. They spend most of their time in Estraperlo, a club where most of the indies band played.

‘Pop Ràpid’ helped to get to know young talents such as Alain Hernández ( ‘Madres’, ‘La Caza. Monteperdido’), Betsy Túrnez ( ‘Los hombres de Paco’, ‘Benvinguts a la família’), Miki Esparbé ( ‘Reyes de la noche’, ‘El inocente’, ‘Brigada Costa del Sol’), David Verdaguer ( ‘Vida perfecta’, ‘Estiu 1993’, ’10 .000 km ‘). All of them became famous thanks to this series, which celebrates the 10th anniversary.

The session will be moderated by Marc Crehuet (creator and director of the series) and some of the original cast such as Alain Hernández, Anna Bertran, Francesc Ferrer and Xesc Cabot
