To check all the medium and short films please go to their site, the link is in the first left column. The best news for me is the new movie by Rodrigo Plá that I hope I’ll be able to see eventually, but the films in competition are quite interesting.

The selection films will have reruns in Corsica, Paris, Rome, Beirut and Mexico at the Morelia International Film Festival in October 2008.
