The Film Festival kicks off with 65,825 fewer spectators than in the last edition | Culture
The XV edition of the Film Festival has started its first day with 336,296 tickets sold, according to Europa Press of the data published ComScore on Twitter. This figure is 320% more than on Monday of last week, although it represents a decrease of 65,825 spectators compared to the 402,121 that attended the first day of the last edition, held in the month of May.
The figure is also lower compared to the first day of the XIII edition, which managed to sell 381,236 entries, representing 44,940 more people than the current edition. The XV Film Festival also arrives after a stunted weekend for the Spanish box office, which some attribute, at least in part, precisely to the celebration of the initiative, which lowers prices to 2.90 euros for three days, until tomorrow, October 3.
According to Europa Press confirmed sources of the Federation of Cinemas of Spain (FECE), early this Tuesday had been accredited 923,515 people. On the figures of Monday they have recognized that the day has started "a little looser" than normal but they have been confident that they will recover.
