Short Film Selection 

The Bus
Dir. Sandra Reina / 2022 / 30′

A bus picks up some passengers on Friday morning to travel the route that brings them closer to the weekend, with their plans, their reflections and their fears. The same bus will pick them up on Sunday afternoon to return them to where they came from.


Longing for Light
Dir. Alba Cros Pellisé / 2023 / 11′

Through a radically personal look, the director explores Barcelona and its light. The sun as a brush that naturally highlights the intimacy of the rooms, friends, lovers and the people around her: her chosen family.


The Danube Rivers
Dir. Jaume Claret Muxart / 2023 / 18′

A writer travels along the Danube in search of the river’s origin. It is said that its waters come from a badly closed tap in a house. On the way he meets a young fugitive who escapes from his house by descending the river. Does the Young Fugitive come from the source of the Danube? What is his story? A film inspired by Claudio Magris’ Danube tales.


Mystic Tiger
Dir. Marc Martínez Jordán / 2023 / 15′

After suffering a mysterious accident, a man acquires the ability to transgress time/space. However, the unbridled use of this gift will inevitably lead him to discover the true reason behind his power.


Somorrostro in Three Acts
Dir. Marga Almirall / 2023 / 16′

Through three different moments, between the sixties, the nineties and the present, the director portrays an emblematic place in Barcelona that has gone from being a marginal corner to becoming one of the epicenters of mass tourism. Somorrostro, now the beach, before the neighbourhood, is the object of this dialogue between archival and current images that is also the reunion, between frames, of a granddaughter with her grandfather.
