On 29 July, the Palacio de Congresos will be playing host to the third edition of the International Short Film Festival “Ciudad de la Línea”. The event is organised by Acucine in partnership with the city council, the provincial council of Cádiz, Canal Sur and several companies.
One of the new features this year is the participation of local secondary schools as a parallel activity. Festival director Miguel Becerra explained that an award will now be given for short films made by students, which will encourage young people to venture into the world of cinema.
The awards this year are for Best National Fictional Short Film, Best International Fictional Short Film, Best National Documentary, Best International Documentary, RTVA - Canal Sur TV Award, Special Jury Award, Francisco Saavedra Prats Award for Best Short Film or Entrepreneur Documentary, Best Spanish Director, Best Amateur Award and Special Mention, awarded by the Acucine Cultural Association. What's more, tribute will be paid to a special guest to be confirmed. In previous editions, the special guests were the actors Eva Isanta and Fernando Esteso.
