Medina Film Festival (SECIME) is one of the most consolidated events in the national film scene, identified as one of the major references for the promotion and dissemination of short films. It has managed to forge itself as a festival with its own personality, betting equally on emerging talent as well as on the most consolidated trajectories.

The festival is synonymous with commitment to the short film, placing itself at the epicenter of an audiovisual offer endorsed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Spain as one of the key festivals in the pre-selection of candidates for the Goya Awards. In addition to having since 2016 with the recognition of the AIC (Short Film Industry Association).

Its offer encompasses six competitions at both national and international level, in order to cover all genres and audiovisual formats -fiction, fantasy and animation- in addition to providing a space for documentary and music video. Increasing the offer through various cycles such as The Image of History, The Classics Chair and Museum Afternoons.

In addition, among its objectives is the promotion, creation and audiovisual production through the National Short Film Project Competition and the influence on the growth of the audiovisual industry of Castilla y León with the pre-selection of works for the Quercus Project.

The festival completes its offer through the commitment to new ways of communication and dissemination of the audiovisual through the meeting spaces, streaming and the theoretical contribution offered by the masterclasses led by and for professionals.
