Festival start: 08 November 2024      Festival end: 29 November 2024

The conceptual line of reference for the Astronomy Film Exhibition is human fascination with the cosmos, together with the observation and exploration of it, in search of answers to the questions it elicits, something which, far from influencing the cinematographic genre, can be reflected in the aesthetic of the film, its poetry, the topic, the plot, or by having been the source of inspiration itself for the work.

No prizes will be awarded. MICA is an exhibition of short films about astronomy, it is not a festival with competitive sections.
