[C]SCREEN is a shortfilm exhibition proposed by the [PLAT ARTÍSTIC] cultural project platform in Cerdanyola del Vallès, in the surroundings of Barcelona (Catalunya, Spain).

Its main goal is to show the latest cinematographic trends from all around the world, with quality films in a wide budget range. In addition, it aims to sensitize those who are unfamiliar with or less informed about new ways of making cinema. We want to culturally enrich Cerdanyola -our town-. We will not charge the public with any entrance fee for watching the shortfilms, it is completely free.

The festival is presented in two parts, in two opposite year periods: in spring with screendance (April) and in autumn with the rest of fiction (mainly October)

This FICTION FALL (October), dedicated to all fiction shortfilms!

[C]SCREEN is organized by the non-profit association [Plat Artístic] and without sponsors or any other entity that gives us money. That means that the prize MAY DEPEND of the quantity of submissions (and, as you can see, the submission fee is quite symbolic). Read below:

* All the selected films will receive a Laurel as Official Selection of the [C]Screen Festival - Fiction Fall.
* Among the selected, the films considered the best will have an Inktip prize package (promotion of your script) and a symbolic cash reward.

We give three prizes (it's not related exactly to the categories, they only help us to program):
- Best National Film
- Best International Film
- Kids award

(Choice made by differents associations or people related to [Plat Artístic] and the audience)

There will NOT be any awards ceremony. And we do not pay any travel/accommodation expense if the selected author(s) films want to be present in the festival. Unfortunately we do not have enough resources to do that.


We only accept submission via FilmFreeway, it is very easy to open an account and the registration is completely free and they will not charge any extra fee but the festival's fee.

If after reading, should you have any problem or question, do not hesitate to contact us at platartistic@gmail.com


We consider as short film any film with a duration equal to or less than 30 minutes (we are flexible). Please, follow the categories.

Any short film created from two years ago and onwards may participate in the [C]SCREEN festival. Short films participating in the festival are not required to be a premiere. Short films projected elsewhere and/or published on Internet may be submitted. Unfinished projects are not accepted.

The nationality of the director/choreographer determines the category in which the film is included. Like this, a short film produced out of Spain by a Spanish director/choreographer will be in the national category. If some credits could give room for confusion, do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail to make clear the category in which you submit.

We require English, French OR Spanish subtitles for the selection process.

The author(s) of each short film must have both the authorship of the film and the rights of other content of third persons appearing in the film.

However, it may be shown completely or partly during educational and/or formation activities organized by the [PLAT ARTÍSTIC] association and its close collaborators (Xiscnèfils, Cineclub Manresa, Taller Cinema Cerdanyola and Museu d'Art de Cerdanyola).
