This is Barcelona’s international short film day
The 21st of December marks the winter solstice and therefore the shortest day of the year. And it is also marked by the celebration of International Short Film Day in 50 different countries and aims to promote the genre through screenings and other activities. The activities scheduled for Barcelona will take place at and around CCCB, where The Shortest Day will feature five different programmes with something for everyone.
Mixing genres and eras, the five blocks are grouped in the following way: Pearls, with a selection of gems from all eras, featuring standout films like Madres de Mario Iglesias; Forward, with films that share an experimental, new narrative approach; Curt.cat, with Catalan short films; In the family, which is devoted to films for all types of public; and finally Nit Bandarra, a wilder session featuring daring, gonzo type short films – a session that aims to break taboos and conventions.
The Shortest Day is organised by Catalunya Film Festivals and Marvin&Wayne, with the support of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Diputació de Barcelona and Barcelona City Council. In addition to the festival programme, you can set up your own celebration at the El Día Más Corto website (http://eldiamascorto.com), which offers you the possibility of creating your own selection of short films to be presented in any home or public space.
