WEEK 10: CINEMAATTIC CUARENTENA SPANISH SHORT FILMS

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT CINEMA (CLICK HERE)

Week 10 is here! A brand new selection of 7 Spanish Short Films to help during the quarantine. Here we go: #CinemaAtticCuarentena Week 10, brought to you by CinemaAttic, Instituto Cervantes, Spain Culture & Science UK and now also with the support of Film Hub Scotland. Every week, we share a new Programme of 7 Spanish Short Films available with English subtitles online. The Films are available until Sunday on our website and in the Facebook event Week 10 | CinemaAttic Cuarentena Shorts where you can watch them, vote and comment for your favorites.

Week 10 and we have a special programme to celebrate it! We prepared a cocktail full of poetry, rockstars, oddballs, aliens, martians and a good dose of Spanish humor(s) with romcoms, a very typical Madrileño mockumentary and a “Paella Space-Revenge-Western”.

Special mention to two multi-awarded shorts straight from the festival circuit: Luis López Carrasco´s VHS bittersweet poem to Tesa Arranz and the Movida Madrileña (‘Aliens’) and Maria Elorza’s ‘Ancora Lucciole’ taking up the baton of Pasolini’s concerns on fading lights…Two films that left us breathless. On the top of that you’ll find films by our beloved Goya-winning animator Khris Cembe and Spanish cinema best kept secret, straight from the Canaries… David Pantaleon!

Every Sunday at 1pm, we wrap up the week together with #CinemaAtticVermouth / Un Vermut con CinemaAttic, a relaxed live conversation with some of the directors on CinemaAttic’s Facebook channel.
