Critical Reception and the International Film Festival

(p.69) Chapter 4 Critical Reception and the International Film Festival
ReFocus: The Films of Pedro Costa

Nuno Barradas Jorge

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter investigates symbolic and economic value formations surrounding Pedro Costa and his films Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie? (2001) and Colossal Youth (2005). It assesses nuanced and, at times, dissonant statuses of artistic consecration taking place on the international film festival circuit, and conferred through film criticism. Such analysis considers various forms of prestige generated at the reception level, particularly with regard to the role of film criticism in situating Costa’s work under particular filmic and cinephile-related taste and cultural categories. This chapter also offers further readings of different forms of capital at stake in the international film festival by examining the economic and symbolic value synergies which made possible the production of A Caça ao Coelho com Pau (The Rabbit Hunters), a 2007 short film commissioned by the Jeonju Digital Project.
