THE FIRST IBEROAMERICAN DANZANTE AWARD, of 5.000 € (five thousand euros) and a trophy goes to the short film MANSPREADING (Spain) by ABDELATIF HWIDAR because we are all in that wagon and it shows the world’s photo of which we are all accomplices. A short film that teaches us that sometimes the correct answers can’t be found if the right questions are not asked.
* directly classified to the pre-selection of the next Hollywood Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences short film award.
THE IBEROAMERICAN “CACHO PALLERO” DANZANTE AWARD of 2.000 € (two thousand euros) and a diploma, goes to the short film FUEGO OLÍMPICO (Mexico) by RICARDO SOTO, because it tells us we mustn’t forget that many times history repeats itself; a short film that reminds us that in order to move forward it is always good to look back.
THE ALBERTO SANCHEZ DEBUT IBEROAMERICAN DANZANTE AWARD, of 1.000 € (one thousand euros) and a diploma, goes to the short film TAHRIB (Spain), by GERARD CORTÉS VIDAL for its approach to a current issue, teaching us what nobody sees about this journey to immigration. It tells us about despair and sacrifice, that in many occasions are hidden behind the word “immigrant”.
Special Mention to the short film UNA NOCHE CON JUAN DIEGO BOTTO (Spain) by TERESA BELLÓN y CÉSAR F. CALVILLO because there is no perfect date.
