Year 2021

The purpose of the “Entre Largos y Cortos Oriente ELCO” Film Festival aims to contribute great achievements to both the film-making community and the attending public, thus enriching future proposals of different genres and promoting film culture throughout the eastern part of the country; where professionals, amateurs and students from the different audiovisual media schools in the country, together with directors, producers, actors and a distinguished work team, lovers of the cinematographic field, will be able to show and enjoy the wonderful world of national cinema. That is why, in this 10th edition, the festival seeks to adapt to new modalities, due to the pandemic we are experiencing in the world and its restrictions, creating a platform of the festival called ELCO that will be our new form of exhibition and leaving behind our predecessor the ELCO Festival that was held since 2011 with an attendance of more than 2,800 people until its ninth installment with a total of 5,900 people who attended in person, with a great reception in the cinematographic medium.
