Sitges screens a selection of fantastic short films al fresco

By now, it’s a summer classic. Some of the very best short films that have passed through the Festival in recent years can be enjoyed al fresco at two different screenings, on the upcoming July 31st and August 12th.  

The screenings will be presented by members of the Festival’s programming committee, and some of the directors of the pieces will be attending.


Tuesday July 31st

Sitges Market (Camí Mas d'en Puig, 8). 23:00. Admission 2 euros

Escarabana (11'), by Sara Casanovas

Hunger, mist, evasion. A couple trapped in eternity. An endless journey to nature itself, driving Cadillacs and escaping the sun.

Cerulia (13'), by Sofía Carrillo

Cerulia starts out on a journey to say goodbye to her home and her childhood, but memories and the presence of her grandparents won’t allow her to leave. A story of memories, childhood fears and family affections. 

Rewind (12'), by Rubén Pérez-Barrena

While everyone is out celebrating Halloween, Elizabeth arrives at her college prepared to study.

The House of Colors (9'), by Nicolas Villareal

Inspired by an original idea by his sister Justina, Nicolás Villarreal devises a beautiful and touching mystery tale, a glimpse at magic through the eyes of a girl with the setting of La Plata as a backdrop.

Sunday August 12th

Sitges- Aiguadolç Marina (Moll de Llevant). 23:00. Free screening 

Viva el rey (9'), by Luís Téllez

Like "postwar" on a chessboard... That’s how Luis Téllez describes the storyline of his piece. The director has been in Sitges on several occasion as a producer and screenwriter for Karla Castañeda’s shorts Jacinta and La Noria.

Born Again (7'), by Jason Tostevin

Five Satanists must face the catastrophic consequences of the power they’ve summoned. 

Bye-bye baby (15'), by Pablo S. Pastor

A young woman prepares to spend a quiet evening at home with a movie as her only company. Following a call from a friend, everything seems to go south. 

Caronte (15'), by Luis Tinoco

Debbie reconsiders how she’s treated her family in the past. Her story intertwines with the story of Arsys, an experienced servicewoman trying to make it out of a great space battle unscathed. 

RIP (17'), by Albert Pintó & Caye Casas

In a Godforsaken village, a woman prepares her husband’s funeral. Everything has to go according to plan, since for her it is very important to get in good with the guests.
