In addition to a Film Commission’s normal activities, SCFC is planning to undertake other activities related to the audiovisual world, in order to make Santiago a reference point for both the industry and its residents. Talks, discussions, conferences, series of films, exhibitions, markets, festivals… there are numerous possibilities and SCFC aims at boosting this type of activities in the city.
In this regard, SCFC created Curtocircuito, which is held in June and has the objective of becoming the main annual short-film event in the Iberian Peninsula. Curtocircuito is the name of a festival and project organised by Santiago City Council and Turismo de Santiago, and sponsored by Caixa Galicia. This initiative was designed to consolidate a platform promoting audiovisual creativity, by means of screening short-film projects in the fields of video-creation, fiction and animation.
Curtocircuito is divided into three sections:
Conferences, round tables, workshops and concerts complete an intense programme in which the short film is the protagonist and Santiago, the perfect location.
