The One Shot Terrassa City of Film is a film festival that takes back the old Sequence Shot Contest organised in Terrassa between 2004 and 2012. It came last year again, and we're following the success. So this is the 11th Edition of the festival.

The particularity of this festival is that ONLY ACCEPTS ONE SHOT FILMS. What does it mean? As is well known, is about telling a story - at least 3 minutes long - in just a single shot, that is: no cutting or image editing.

In 2017, Terrassa was selected as a "Creative City of UNESCO in Film", a recognition that only 17 cities in the world have. This leads to recover a past that it is what brought us this present.

The festival will take place during the week from October 20th to 23rd 2024, also being part of the "3rd Cinema Week of [...]

SEMBRANDO CINE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
XII EDITION: Recognizing our shadow

Our shade can be a real problem.

It is that side of our humanity, which we prefer to keep hidden, and which makes us act questionably.

This shadow, is in part, what has led us to cause a terrible impact on the environment.

Deforestation, oil spills, pollution of soils and seas, annihilation of species, violation of indigenous rights and assassinations of environmental defenders.

This shadow, individual and collective, is projected from the big cities over our ecosystems and under the protection of state legality and private investments in favor of “progress and industrialization”.
