Shorts in the special evening of terror will be screened from Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, United Kingdom and France.

Le crayon (Belgium-France-Switzerland, 2017)

Mecal is regarded as one of the most firmly-rooted of Spain’s film festivals, with quality, diversity and originality considered trademark characteristics. The All Saints’ Day evening of screenings has been put together in association with Formentera Film Festival, whose organisers have actively sought collaborative projects with distinct festivals since the very start of FFF. From 25 to 27 November, the organising arm of FFF will join forces with Espai F to host Cinema als quatre vents, where guests of La Mola’s Casa del Poble can catch jury favourites from the 21st Soria International Short Film Fest.
