Film Festival


I'm planning on a trip to Sitges this year from Oct 4-7th and just realized that the Film Festival is during this time. Is the town going to be mayhem? I was hoping for a laid back few days without huge crowds of people. Not a huge fan of fantasy films and horror movies. Does the festival happen all over town? Or is it specific to one area?

Would love some recommendations for some other seaside towns that are under an hour from Barcelona, as well.

Certainly not mayhem. Although the Sitges cinemas show films connected with the festival, it is mostly centred at the Hotel Melia. Restaurants can be busy, so book if you want to guarantee a table.

Many of the shops decorate their windows and of course the Zombie Walk meanders through Sitges.

We went while the film festival was on in 2016 and the town was only really busy on the Saturday night for the zombie walk other wise it just gave a nice buzzy atmosphere to the place . Could make the prices for accommodation more pricey though as demand will be higher , as mentioned in the previous reply most of the events are at the Melia hotel which is a bit out of the town . It just all depends what you are personally looking for , we are off to Sitges for gay pride next week and love the town when there is a bit going on .
