Family, is there anything more important in this world?

Yes amigos, once again, we aim to talk about love. A very particular type of love: Family

We do not choose the family into which we are born. Yet, they have a big influence in our lives! The family circle is a key element when developing our own identity. More over, families can be messy, and sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we are related and that we have the same blood.

CinemaAttic has gathered five award winning Short Film that explore this topic for our programme in May at Summerhall. To offer a plural viewpoint, we will move from children’s perspective to the one of the youth and the elderly. Social and political concerns, death, mental health and LGBT issues… Different perspectives of a topic that will help us understand why the love of our family can be so unique.

Celebrating the diversity of Spanish filmmaking industry we bring key short films from ECAM (Madrid) ESCAC (Barcelona) and KIMUAK (Basque Country). Nicaragua is our guest country with a short documentary taking us to the landfills in Managua. Our clásico this month casts back to 2009 bringing a human perspective on how to deal with a family member that suffers from schizophrenia.

You should know already the formula but if not, we take this opportunity to remind you what CinemaAttic means = A powerful curated selection of short films, all with English subtitles, as well as networking breaks for the enjoyment of both the Ibero-American community and cinema lovers alike.

Now pencil down folks this is important,
