Sitges 2015 revs its engines with alfresco short film screenings

When the 48th Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia is just over two months away, the Festival is organizing a mini marathon of short films at the Sitges – Aiguadolç Marina, an initiative that has been going on for four years running.

The event will be on Saturday, 1 August, at 23:00, with a lineup including seven short films that could be seen last year at Sitges 2014. What they all have in common is the fantasy and horror theme and their track record at different national and international festivals, where many of them have picked up important awards.
