THE Xabia Negra festival of literature, film and photography has been judged a winner, despite its status as a newcomer on the Javea calendar. The second edition saw well known authors attending and giving talks on their works and literature in general. There were several book readings and round tables to discuss the works.
A number of short films were premiered in the cinema section of the festival, with the Riurau School of cinema judging a competition to find the best. On the photographic side of the event, there was a display of 250 images from around the world and the best pictures can still be seen on display in the Municipal Market.
Quico Moragues, Councillor for Culture, said that the Xabia Negra was already positioning itself as one of the premium such festivals across Spain and everyone involved was already looking forward to next year.
