SHORTFILMS, PILLOW FIGHTS AND COOKING CLASSES
SHORTFILMS AND ANIMATION
One of the things that are synonymous with Spring in Barcelona, is festivals! One of them is the popular Mecal Pro 2013 : International Festival of Short films and Animation. There are in total 5 programs, of which two are dedicated to the most outstanding short films that are to be produced in Finland.
Also on this year´s schedule across several parallel sections is animation, specifically Special Animateka which is dedicated to the Slovenian festival where the best Eastern European short films are screened. In addition, there will also be the “Best of Roanne Animation” short film festival, which will showcase some works that were featured at the French festival.
For the young ones there will also be a special Children´s section, as well as a retrospective “Best Of” section which will be showing the best short films that have featured at this festival over the 15 years that it has been taking place.
