WEEK 11: CINEMAATTIC CUARENTENA SPANISH SHORT FILMS

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT CINEMA (CLICK HERE)

Week 11 is here! A brand new selection of 7 Spanish Short Films to help during the quarantine. Here we go: #CinemaAtticCuarentena Week 11, 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 11 | CinemaAttic Cuarentena Shorts where you can watch them, vote and comment for your favorites.

We’re taking you on a journey around the world with a programme that gathers Oscar-nominated and several Goya-winning short films. From the rooftops of Buenos Aires to the streets of Goa in India. From the shores of Morocco to an all-American diner in the US. A humanitarian campaign in the heart of Africa, a surrealistic gore reinterpretation of Jesus’ miracles somewhere in Judea, finishing with England beginning of the XX Century, shipyards, inventors, horse races…  A cinematic trip to the heart of cinema, both entertaining and inspiring.

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. You can also see previous Interviews with Directors on our YouTube channel.
