The Official category of the 20th Sant Joan d’Alacant Film Festival can be watched in Festhome TV from May 18th through May 24th.

We welcome yet another great festival, Goya Awards qualifying festival for short films, to Festhome TV.

You can watch the festival FOR FREE until May, 24th.

Circumstances derived from the Covid-19 pandemic have pushed us to organise the Sant Joan d’Alacant Film Festival in Festhome TV. The platform will remain open from may 18th through may 24th for online viewing from Spain, with a dedicated page for the festival and 30 short films selected for competition out of the 1086 short films that were submitted in the call for entries that closed last February.

Just like a traditional festival, the online event will be active for a limited time only, a week, and spectators will be able to get their tickets for free for the different sessions in which the short films are shown.

Like any other year, short films single out society's most pressing concerns. A clear example would be films dealing with abuse and sexual violence, like Alvaro Gago's 16 de Decembro (Gago received the Sundance Jury Award for Matria) or Ana Lambarri's recent 16 (a title which refers to the age of its main character, played by the young Alba Planas), which show the power of these themes in the world of short films (the La manada trial, the widespread ME TOO movement, etc).

You can check the list of 30 films here.
