MADRID - Twenty-one shorts - five of which are up for a Goya, the Spanish equivalent of an Oscar - are being screened at the 11th Festival Curt Ficcions, a festival that's being held simultaneously in Barcelona and Madrid from 29 January to 6 March.
The slogan this year is "Time is Relative," and its programme has been carefully selected to feature only the best work of the season - or so says Juan Antonio Bayona, director of The Orphanage, the highest-grossing Spanish movie in a long time.
Besides the competing films, there is a special section devoted to the world's best-known African director, Idrissa Ouédraogo, who has won several awards at Cannes and also holds a Silver Bear from the Berlinale.
The winning films will be screened in 21 Spanish cities.
