DiversidArte Social Inclusion short Film Festival is a support created for the promotion, production, and cultural diffusion of Art where its main protagonists are people with intellectual, physical, psychic and sensory diversity along with other groups in situation and risk of exclusion with activities that promote synergies between collectives and their own inclusion as artists within society.

... THE DIFFERENT; those who do not "fit", or are considered "unfittable." Barriers that our NON PROFIT Charity Poten100mos through this project wants to break and demonstrate that DIVERSITY is one of the great riches of our society and Art is Universal.

    Our short film won Best Perspective Gender's Section Short Film Award in 2019. After a year and lots of emails, they still didn't pay our cash award. With little hope I'm still waiting..

    Un festival diferente, donde gracias al cine, la diversidad social y la inclusión se dan de la mano para promover valores de verdad y esa fe en la humanidad que a veces parece perdida.
