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.
