One night, the best 5 short films from the Balearic islands

Next Thursday will be held the 2nd short films exhibition of the Balearic Islands.

Next Thursday 28 February at 9:30 pm, you are invited to enjoy this great selection that brings together the best works of the islands. The festival is organised by Héctor Escandell, writer and film director, born in Ibiza. After having released the independent film “The Crimes of All Hallows Day”—perhaps you saw it in the last edition of the Ibiza Cine Fest— and already with a second production on the way, he makes a little stop to share these great pieces of work with us and cheer up the winter residents in Ibiza with a very interesting program.

The 5 short films that will be screened are:

BACKGROUND

Toni Bestard’s latest fiction short film (“And I’m Your Father”, “El perfecto Desconocido”) will open the screenings. An artwork with multiple awards and nominations in international festivals. Starring the multidisciplinary and talented artist Diego Ingold and Aina Zuazaga.

BLAUMAR

The second short of the exhibition, directed by Helher Escribano, was a finalist in the 12th edition of Jameson Notodofilmfest, and many other national and international festivals. An honest production with a strong environmental message.

BOHEMIA

The third short of the exhibition, Bohemia, directed by Anna Petrus, is set in rural Catalonia in the 20s. A painter awakens the passion for art and painting in a teenager, while he teaches the only world he knows: the vineyards and wine. He was awarded at the Most Festival (Vilafranca del Penedès) and at the Long Beach International Film Festival (USA) as a jury award.

KYOKO

The 4th screening, directed by Marcos Cabotá and Joan Bover, takes us to April 1971, when the arrest of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in Majorca was everywhere on the news. The reason was the kidnapping of a girl named Kyoko. The film was nominated to the Goya’s Best Short Film Documentary, among many other awards.

NADIUSKA

And the last—and special—projection of the night is… Nadiuska, directed by Jose Luis Mir and Javier Suárez in 2006. Situated back in the seventies, the story mixes love, friendship, fantasies, and surprises, starring Marc and Gabriel Torres, and Djamila Siegmund.

The entrance to the event is free, so you have no excuses…

Come and enjoy a night of cinephilia in Ibiza, and keep supporting the local artists and culture.

Carrer Barcelona 5, Sant Antoni.
