SOCUMO (Sociedad Cultural Molinesa) is 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.

This Festival started out by screening the work of one of our members, together with other friends who shared the same interest in timelapse. It turned out to be such a success that in the 2nd edition we decided to make it a competition. We received entries from all over Spain, as well as Portugal, the United Kingdom and Canada, amongst others. Some of them have been awarded internationally, even chosen by National Geographic to be shown on its internet TV channel. In our last edition, over 500 attendees enjoyed some great films. In fact, it was such a success that we even had to repeat the screenings the next day.

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!

    Great Festival in a very interesting location. It had the best public attendance at a Film Festival I've seen so far with people queuing around the block to get in. It is one of very few exclusively timelapse film festivals and attracts the works of the best timelapse artists from around the world.
