Week 9 is here! A brand new selection of 7 Spanish Short Films to help during the quarantine. Here we go: #CinemaAtticCuarentena Week 9, 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 9 | CinemaAttic Cuarentena Shorts where you can watch them, vote and comment for your favorites.

All these shorts made it big in the international film festival circuit. Essential Goya winning directors (Alberto Vazquez, Luiso Berdejo & Jorge Dorado or our beloved Alenda Brothers), Malaga Film Fest winners (Susana Casares) and also some of our favorite modern filmmakers representing the so called “Otro Cine Español”: Lois Patiño, Sergio Oksman or Koldo Almandoz. What a line-up once again!

This was our Sunday Vermut and chat with with Koldo Almandoz, Jose and Cesar Alenda. Live Euskera and Spanish interpretation by Claudia Torralba Rubinos.
