Week 12 is here! A brand new selection of 7 Spanish Short Films to help during the quarantine. Here we go: #CinemaAtticCuarentena Week 12, brought to you by CinemaAttic, Instituto Cervantes, Spain Culture & Science UK, Film Hub Scotland and The National Lottery’s Awards for All 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 12 | CinemaAttic Cuarentena Shorts where you can watch them, vote and comment for your favorites.

This week we bring a multidimensional programme of proper cult classics and award-winning shortfilms. It includes films by maestros from Colombia, Chile, Argentina or Brazil. You will find the old and the new, opera primas that got their authors on their track to amassing awards and works from prestigious filmmakers coming back to the original format, the short film. Animation, documentary, fiction and then, a mix of all of the above. Sit back and enjoy a rather eclectic programme as only CinemaAttic can bring to you.

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.
