The Sitges film festival was born in 1968 as the International Week of Fantasy and Horror Film and, over the years, has become a virtually obligatory event for moviegoers and, in general, for any viewer who wants to see the New ideas and technical possibilities that have been applied to the cinema. This makes the festival, usually held in October, usually enjoy averages of attendance of over 50,000 spectators in each edition.
One of the peculiarities of the Sitges film festival is that it offers spectators multiple options beyond the pure assistance to the projection of the films, both those that participate in the official section as those that are projected out of competition. In addition to being able to mix with stars, directors and producers of international renown, and have small talks with them, attendees can attend thematic exhibitions or participate in workshops that show secrets of the seventh art. Even many restaurants in Sitges offer these special "horror" menus, based on dishes whose names already frighten them.
The event parallel to the Sitges film festival with the biggest influx of the festival is, the zombie march of Sitges: the "Zombie Walk". Hundreds of undead walk the streets of Sitges in a macabre parade, where bloody faces and frayed clothes are the protagonists. The march ends each year with a free party on the beach of Paseo de la Ribera, enlivened with different musical performances. The party continues on the premises of Calle del Pecado, with a cinema-marathon in the Cine Retiro, or even the most daring dare with a bath in the Mediterranean, whose waters are still usually warm in the middle of October.
