[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 sessions (April) and in autumn with the rest of fiction.

Awards & Prizes

This year edition 2018, we have decided to include some simbolic cash reward.

[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 the submission fee it is quite symbolic. Please read the rules and discover if you have any advantatge.

All the selected films will received a Laurel as Official Selection of the [C]Screen Festival. And the winners of the cash reward would be the ones that the Jury and the public decide are the best of each category.

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 for that.
