Cristina Andreu,

has been attacked by journalist Luis Roca Arencibia and the producer Marta de Santa Ana Pulido.

The filmmaker Cristina Andreu and the scriptwriter Virginia Yagüe, present in Gran Canaria as members of the festival jury, were sitting this Saturday night in a restaurant, whose security cameras recorded what happened, when the producer

Marta de Santa Ana Pulido

approached and he photographed them with his mobile phone while proffering insults against Cristina Andreu,

CIMA and the festival organization say

in a statement.

Immediately afterwards,

Luis Roca Arencibia

, current secretary of Communication of the CCOO Endesa Interempresas Union Section and president of Audiovisual Plural de Canarias, hit the filmmaker in the face with his hand and yelled at her various insults.

The injuries caused by the attack suffered

several injuries

to Cristina Andreu, who has reported what happened at the police station.

misusing the name Association of Women Filmmakers and Audiovisual Media

as well as the slogan # MásMujeres devised for the GOYAS awareness campaign in February 2018.
