Festival start: 10 October 2024      Festival end: 13 October 2024

The RELLISQUÍN FESTIVAL is an audiovisual exhibition that wants to reflect on the relationship between the city and its neighbors. We look for projects that talk about life in cities: protest movements, struggles to preserve historical memory, urban transformations and changes, social demands and the experiences of neighbors with their environment.

We are looking for projects that understand the audiovisual as a tool of struggle, denunciation and testimony of realities in danger of disappearing. We want to vindicate the critical, committed and cooperative spirit, making known aspects that concern society and that are not sufficiently covered in commercial medias, cinemas and the usual distribution channels. We want to show national or international works about historical, social, political and activist consciousness, personal relationships and human rights in a city.

Best Fiction short:
1st prize: 500e
2nd prize: Mention

Best Documentary Short:
1st prize: 500e
2nd prize: Mention

Shorts in 36: This award will be decided by popular vote during the closing ceremony. The prize consists of a 100e voucher that can be used in shops affiliated to the Eix Comercial del Poblenou.
