In the early hours of December 24, 1858, a meteorite, the largest recorded to date in Spain, fell in Molina de Segura, a historic, industrial and entrepreneurial town in the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia.

This unexpected and lucky collision has become over time one of the hallmarks of the municipality. Giving rise to an amazing legend that still endures. It is believed that the crater left by the meteorite emits a happy, fertile and inextinguishable radiation that explains the disproportionate appearance of artists of all kinds and conditions that today exhibit a relationship, however light it may be, with the locality. Taking this mythological motif as a pretext, 164 years later, “El Meteorito” was born, at the Molina de Segura Short Film Festival. An initiative of the Department of Culture of the Molina de Segura City Council that will form part of the II SEMANA MOLINA ES CINE and that its continuity is guaranteed.

Its ultimate purpose is to select six short films that share the same nature as the meteorite, namely: short stories with an indelible impact on the viewer. But first, it intends to become an obligatory and recurring reference for national short films and arouse the interest and price of a public that is not specialized in this cinematographic modality.

In its final section -October 28, 2022- only the six selected short films will participate, which will be endorsed by the physical presence of their own creators. Reserving the morning of Saturday October 29 for the meeting of these directors and the awards ceremony.

The theme of the festival, whatever the genre and format of the works that attend the Festival, must be of an eminently social nature.
