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.


This year we have received almost 800 short films, from 78 countries.  You can have the program online or by downloading.

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