This week we have a truly  eclectic mix of award-winning short films. We have cute animal fables, robots, zombies and also dark animal fables. We have Mediterranean fishermen and three generations of Basque women rethinking the relation of women and public space. And we also have a mad musical… Amongst the films is one of the first Spanish shorts to be nominated to the Oscars (7.35 by Nacho Vigalondo), one of Spain’s first shorts competing in Sundance and Cannes’ Quinzaine (The Attack of the Robots from Nebula -5) and several Goya nominees (Birdboy, Domador de Peixos, Gure Hormek)
