In this section we suggest a travel, without moving away from your armchair, to another countries and other realities which aren't usual in news. Because there are cuntries, situations, conflicts worthwhile to know, even although they are not the focus of tourism or media attention.
A place for ecology, for learning to respect the environment and its inhabitants. Because our world needs we to learn to love it and take care of it, or it's rather us, as species, who need to do it if we are to survive.
Two men or two women who love each other. Or that wish each other. Why there's so much people who feels threatened for something like that? It's not infectious, and even if it were, nothing happens.This section aims to help to normalize homosexuality as other forms of free relationship between people, discarding homophobic and reactionary patterns.
A section dedicated to short films which speak about the crisis, that economic, but also politic, labour, social and cultural phenomenon, that smears our lifes and tests us as a society. A crisis supposedly no one wants, and that has meant a radical change in our lifes, told in ten short stories.
We welcome this show of local cinema, engage with FESCIGU during the first editions. This time, we bring you 7 short films; you will be able, now and again, to recognize actors and locations from here, but, most important, you will view stories that our filmmakers care.
We wanted to make a love section, but films programmed here are about breaking up (as we say in Guadalajara, "partir peras"). Loving relationships have mostly an expiration date, and it depends of us how we manage it, the level of trauma and what remains afterwards: a nice friendship or a deep resentment. We always bet for a positive and reconciling attitude.
We offer 28 short stories choosen by our selection committee from the 777 european shorts we have received this year. They are the best among the best and we encourage you to participate by voting to choose your favorite short. Each year, our seleccion is positioning FESCIGU as a lider festival regarding to quality of programmation. Unfortunatelly, many works couldn't be here, but many of them, the best of them, have been selected in the other sections.
The best european requetecortos, namely, those that last up to 6 minutes, are here. They are 16 titles which you can see in one hour, 16 short stories, counted in a brief way, and you will have to choose through your vote, which ones will get the first and second prize.
We repeat this section that last year was a great success. A space dedicated to sexuality, not to pornography nor eroticism. A section where sex is the essential component in the narrated stories. Although bottoms are not displayed. O maybe yes...
We seem to live in a world in which violence is an inheret part of society. There is much to discuss about this thesis, but in any case it is clear that violence begets hatred and suffering. In this section we give an space for violence, but not for enjoying it, but for learning to repudiate it, as one of the biggest burdens of mankind.
