Informe Semanal “La Tomatina” – 1983
With the original report of Informe Semanal, Javier Basilio made La Tomatina Festival of Buñol public in Spain. Since then, everything changed, the number of attendees increased year after year so La Tomatina Festival became a famous festivity all over the world. As a result of this, the festivity was declared Festivity of International Tourist Interest.
Cortometraje “El Punto Rojo” – 2012
A cut directed by Darío J.Ferrer and Carlos Sánchez Arévalo about the origins of La Tomatina Festival with a great sense of surreal humor. Pepe, who was obsessed by tomatoes since he was born, fell in love with Encarna (the grocer’s daughter). Unfortunately, he has a strong opponent, Alfonsito. The ending of this love triangle has the backdrop of La Tomatina Festival origins in 1945.
Outstanding artists such as Alejo Sauras, Javivi, Carabias, Albert Pla, Mariam Hernandez, Lola Molto, Joan Gadea, Jose Montó, among others, participated in this work…as well as the citizens of Buñol.

Official Song of La Tomatina Festival:
“Todo del mismo color” - Malsujeto (2008)
The song “Todo del mismo color” was published in 2008 as the soundtrack of a clip directed by Darío Ferrer, where pictures of La Tomatina Festival 2008 were included. The song was introduced later in the second album of the Buñol music band, “Fuera de control” (Out of control). The song had a great impact on Internet and also in Buñol.
Due to this popularity, the City Hall decided to choose it as the best song to represent La Tomatina Festival because this song makes easier the promotion of this exclusive festivity like never before.
The members of the band didn’t expect that their song was so successful. Even before they composed the song, they found difficult this process because they didn’t want a typical song talking about La Tomatina or tomatoes. That is the reason why they focus on the feelings evoked by the festivity.
