SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT CINEMA (CLICK HERE)

 

This is the end, our dear friends…the end!

All good things come to an end and CinemaAttic Cuarentena is no exception. Thanks for accompanying us in this thrilling journey across Modern Spanish Cinema. Let’s celebrate it with the last programme of EIGHT short films, as we included a bonus track.

Here we go: #CinemaAtticCuarentena Week 13, brought to you by CinemaAttic, Instituto Cervantes, Spain Culture & Science UK and now also with the support of 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 13 | CinemaAttic Cuarentena Shorts where you can watch them, vote and comment for your favorites.

Saying that we love this final programme would sound silly since we are the ones programming it. But then CinemaAttic has been known for a lot sillier than that. WE LOVE THIS PROGRAMME!!! Enjoy a collection of Short Films that have won it all – together with some films that went under the radar (even CinemaAttic’s radar, since some of them we didn’t programme back in the day!). Goya winners like JL Montesinos, masters of the absurd like Nacho Vigalondo or David Pantaleon, brilliant animators like Jossie Malis or Cesar Diaz Melendez and three proper classics to garnish our last extended programme of the Cuarentena. Find why comedy is still the best weapon against intolerance and polarization these days. Once again we have fiction shorts, animation films and documentaries and then they all mix so well together.

For the last time, we will gather on Sunday at 1pm, we will wrap up 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.
