Hall Short Shorts


Well, it’s time to put you out of your misery and reveal the eagerly awaited results . . . 

We’ve been counting votes by the sackful—who ever would have thought your short shorts would have whipped people up into such a frenzy!

Gee, folks, we’re tickled pink with the response: our playlist has had nearly 3,000 views (2,887 to be precise), almost as many as last year, during those accursed days when Covid-19 was raging and we had to move the whole festival online.

So, without any further ado . . .


Walter Benjamin. Medianoche en la historia, by Cristina Bouzas Escolano (Herva films), has won Third Prize (2 tickets for screenings at l'Alternativa 2021) with 11.5% of the 859 votes cast (that's 99 votes).


Second Prize (a ticket for Manuel Muñoz Rivas's Masterclass and a multipass) goes to . . .


Άστέριος, by Cinzia Durán, with 13.3% of the votes cast (that's 114 votes).


And finally, what you've all been waiting for, First Prize (two multipasses) goes to . . .


Dies Irae, by Claudia Montes Curto, with 18.9% of the votes cast (that's 162 votes).

Congratulations to Claudia, Cinzia and Cristina! We hope you enjoy your prizes. And, once again, many thanks to all of you for submitting your short shorts!
