Encounters Short Film Festival

38th Encounters Short Film FestivalIn 1981, André ABET and the city of Cabestany decided to create the First Encounter Short Film Festival of Cabestany. It is truly a encounter, more than a festival, because everything is planned to promote exchange between audience and directors, like the  numerous “verre de l’amitié” (friendship toasts), offered after each screening. Always a fun and friendly moment!

Animation, documentary, experimental, fiction, musical clip and report with a maximum length of 30 minutes and French subtitles can take part in this international event.

The audience and a professional Jury, award prizes in 6 different categories : Amateur, Young Filmmakers, Professional, Semi-Professional, Catalan and International.

This year we have received over 350 short films, from 52 countries. After have watching over 80 hours of films in 7 weeks, the committee has decided to select 43 short-films. You can download here the program, the press kit, the prize list or acces to our archives.

If you want to submit your short-film you can, until September 30, download the registration form. You can also directly submit with Click for festivals (€) or filmfreeway ($)

We hope you can join us to celebrate this new edition where as always, the beautiful encounters will be guaranteed!
