For yet another year, the longest night will become The Shortest Day, a short film marathon with four sections packed full of novelties and rarities.
Throughout the year, Barcelona is particularly well served in the field of short films, with a wealth of festivals and thematic sessions at cinemas. And in addition to this, for the last five years, a short film marathon that goes under the name of The Shortest Day has been held at the CCCB contemporary culture centre. The name honours the fact that the day on which it is held, the 23rd of December, is the shortest day of the year. This year's festival features four sections running from 6.30pm to 11pm. And it's all for free.
The first of these sections, which will be held in the CCCB auditorium, is called Perles, will feature recent high-quality short films that have won awards at festivals, and will include titles by directors like Mar Coll and Ursula Meier. The second section is called Km. 0 and features both established and up-and-coming Catalan directors. The third section, called Junior Beat, is aimed at children. The fourth section, Bandarra!, includes a selection of more outlandish short films with generous amounts of both blood and humour.
