If our first ‘CORTOMETRAJES’ event left us feeling profoundly grateful and touched, the second left us speechless; so much so, that three days later we still can’t quite process the scale of its success… We knew that the chosen titles for CORTOMETRAJES – 7 Spanish Short Films are seven cinematic gems in their own right. We knew that the London public have a real taste for cinema Made in Spain. We knew that we could count on the excellent work of our partners at Shorts on Tap to ensure that the event would run smoothly. We knew that there would be a good turn-out of our readers, friends and familiar faces as well as the film buffs, the curious-minded, the indie-artsy types, not to mention the East-End crowd. But the amount of people that showed up was beyond anything we imagined! The venue, 93 Feet East, was full to the brim and could barely handle the numbers of our devoted audience.
We are Brit Es are delighted to announce our very first event: CORTOMETRAJES — 7 Short films, a screening which will take place on 16 September from 7pm. The event has been set up to put the spotlight on Brit Es talent and creativity — a concept that encompasses people, projects, trends and proposals which emerge in the United Kingdom, but with a Spanish character or origin which are also influenced by British culture.
