Festival start: 14 October 2024      Festival end: 18 October 2024

We are organizing the first edition of the Majadahonda International Social Film Festival (MISFE’24), based on the conviction that cinema is a tool for social transformation, and by promoting the dissemination of critical and quality cinema, we can educate and sensitize the community about important social issues.

MISFE’24 not only promises to be a showcase for cinematic talent but also addresses and focuses on social issues of interest, as films can serve as educational and catalyzing tools for dialogue on relevant topics.

We want to help improve the development of Majadahonda and promote the enrichment of cultural offerings, as the diversity of films presented at the festival can enrich the cultural life of the community by exposing Majadahonda residents to diverse stories, perspectives, and artistic expressions.

We believe that cinema has the unique power to touch our emotions and awaken empathy. Therefore, celebrating this festival will provide us with the opportunity to connect on a deeper level with stories that reflect the diversity of our experiences and inspire us to understand and appreciate the richness of the human condition.

Through the short films participating in this first edition, we will explore and celebrate diversity in all its forms: cultural, social, racial, and more. By highlighting diverse narratives, the festival will promote inclusion and mutual understanding, building bridges between communities.

The selected films will not only be entertaining but also motivating. Through stories of overcoming, denunciation, activism, and positive change, the festival will serve to share ideas.

Among all the Short Finalists, the Jury will choose the winning Shorts of the Festival in the following categories.
