The beauty of a short film lies in its ability to communicate a strong message and to reveal something of the world in an original way. It immerses you in an intense emotional experience for a brief span of time.

La otra parte del mundo

This year’s special section will take you to South America through documentaries, animation, drama, humor and reflection.

Motivated by a great passion for the southern region of the New World, we are looking for images, signs, language, landscapes and sounds which represent –at least in part- what had been and what still is South America. A world in which we rediscover ourselves, reflected in the vestiges of European colonialism and in the presence of US influence, while portraying the aboriginal people, who still bear witness to their true historical roots.
