Filmets Badalona Short Film Festival 2022
By Charlotte Stace
One of the oldest short film festivals in Catalunya, Filmets Badalona Short Film Festival 2022 launched its first edition over 50 years ago as an international gathering for presenting amateur films. Later, when the festival began to amplify its program and focus on professional cinema, it became a platform for local talents while also showing works by luminaries like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Pedro Almodóvar.
The festival program includes leading national and international short filmmakers. In 2012, FILMETS won the BISFF Prize for the best European short film festival. This year it celebrates its 48th edition with an extensive programme of awe-inspiring films running from October 21st to the 30th. Included in the line-up are films such as The Water Murmurs (2022) by Jianying Chen, La Inquilina (2021) by Lucas Paulino and Ángel Torres, Object of Life (2021) by Jack Parry, and Little Berlin (2021) by Kate McMullen.
