We are a festival dedicated exclusively to the technique of Time Lapse and Stop Motion. We started in 2012 and we are already a Festival of reference. The festival is organized by SOCUMO (Sociedad Cultural Molinesa), a non-profit cultural association which, by means of activities like this festival, promotes creativity, culture and, at the same time, makes our region better-known. Every year we try to improve this festival from the experienced gathered. Our best ambassadors are those attendees from previous editions, as they can vouch for the experience. We hope to see you!
Due to the situation caused by COVID19, we are forced to postpone the VIII edition of the International Time Lapse Festival that was to be held in August 2020.

    One of the main reasons I traveled from the United States to Spain for this festival was because of the amazing communication from the festival director Miguel Angel. He did a great job letting me know what was happening so I could plan my trip with confidence.
    I felt like royalty as I was picked up at the airport, given a tour of a National Park, tour of a castle, put up in a hotel, and given some of my meals all for free covered by the festival.
    The festival was fantastic and it felt like the entire town of Molina came out in support. The line wrapped around the building as 400+ people filled the theater.
    I was honored to be included in this festival and have my work shown along side so many talented film makers. If you are lucky enough to be invited I strongly suggest you make the effort to attend.
