The Festival of Cinema is an initiative that is held every semester, organized by the Federation of Film Distributors (Fedicine), the Federation of Cinemas of Spain (Fece) and the Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA), and that involves the 95% of the cinemas in Spanish (on this occasion, 3.069 screens of 351 cinemas), with entries to 2,90 euros. The autumn edition is usually more successful than the spring. In October of last year, the Feast of the Cinema, with 1.3 million entries, was the worst since 2012.

That is to say, the best figure of the last two and a half years, over the preceding four calls, even if it is below the 2.6 million viewers in October 2016.
On this occasion, there was some fear that the continued disaffection of the public, after a weekend of spectacular, in which the top20 had exceeded the eur 8.2 million in revenue. Not been well, and thanks to that the billboard was full of very different and interesting titles. The 10 films most viewed have been Joker, Maleficent 2: the master of evil, The Addams family, for the duration of the war, The silence of the white city, Zombieland: kills and finishes off, Abominable, Gemini, rainy Day in New York, Parasites, and state Secrets.
Another change that has improved the attendance has been to delay a bit your celebration: from the beginning to the end of October, with the worst time. Among the data to highlight, the organizers point out that the Wednesday were the rooms more than a million viewers, something that has not occurred from the Wednesday 27th of December 2017.
