The short films will be screened à la carte at the 21st edition of Nest, the international genre competition for film students at the San Sebastian Festival. This was announced today by the organizers of the event, who selected 13 films from 350 films presented by 160 schools from 44 countries.

The selected works come from Germany, Brazil, China, Colombia, Spain, the United States, France, Japan, the Dominican Republic, South Africa and Switzerland.

According to the source, Nest has a calling to become a meeting point for students, filmmakers, industry professionals and the public.

The 134 selected short films will be shown from Monday, September 19th to Friday, September 23rd at the Tabakalera cinema. Master classes and social events will accompany this segment of Zinemaldia, as the San Sebastian event is also known.

A jury consisting of a well-known personality from the film industry and students from the selected universities awards the Nest Prize, which is endowed with 10,000 euros, to the director of the winning short film.

On the other hand, acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura will reappear at Zinemaldia with the premiere of the documentary The Walls Speak.

This was announced today by the organizing committee of the event scheduled for next September in the Basque country city.

It will take place under the umbrella of the RTVE network, which will allow viewers to appreciate this type of essay on Saura’s art (The hunt, Ana and the wolves, Cría cuervos, Mama turns 100, Ay Carmela).

The 70th edition of San Sebastian presents the Donostia Awards for their careers to French actress Juliette Binoche and Canadian director David Cronenberg.

There will again be the Horizontes Latinos section, in which this year 12 applicants from Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Cuba and Mexico will compete and complete this section.
