Festival start: 04 July 2023      Festival end: 09 July 2023

La GRAN pantalla is an intergenerational cinematographic meeting space that seeks to dismantle stereotypes about older people through cinema. We look for stories that allow us to generate new readings and discourses about older people, beyond the conventional representations that are usually associated with this stage of life.

We are interested in films that address the issue of the elderly from diverse perspectives: migration, sexuality, feminism, LGBTIQ+ community, among others.

- Best international short film: 300 euros + statuette + Distribution Pass Festhome

- Special Jury Mention: 150 euros + statuette

- Audience Award: 150 euros + statuette
