Who are we

Curtocircuíto – International Film Festival was founded in 2003 by the Santiago de Compostela City Council with the aim of fostering film creation.

Nineteen editions later, Curtocircuíto is a leading festival in the Spanish landscape, working in direct contact with other festivals in Europe. Films from around the world compete in our Official Section, and in the parallel sections we offer heterodox programmes covering different formats and lengths. Contemporaneity, boldness and formal exploration are the elements that guide our work. For the past years, this model has evolved to turn Curtocircuíto into an interdisciplinary festival that, while keeping cinema at its core, encompasses other disciplines in its programme, including photography, sound art, ethnography, music or literature, among others. We believe that this dialogue among the different arts that make up the festival enriches our spectators’ experience and allows us, as programmers, to break with certain conventions and constraints that are typical of traditional festivals. Curtocircuíto is a festival committed to its times and one that supports citizens’ creation, training and integrationa ludic and cultural meeting point.
