Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation
Emilio Martí’s creative trajectory demonstrates his commitment to social issues that highlight our problems with coexistence and solidarity in today’s society. Since his short film Desanimado (2011), winner of countless awards, his work has not stopped betting on a lively and effective story-telling and emotional resonance, always using animation as an expressive key. With this short film, which also won several awards, he brings us closer to the harsh reality of the Internment Centers for Foreigners (CIE) and the personal experiences of immigrants.
Free Community Event.
The Cervantes Institute maintains its program dedicated to LGTBIQ+ identities by collaborating with institutions and monographic festivals to make their film series more visible. This year, the program dedicated to highlighting the celebration of LGTBIQ+ Pride Day comes from the Basque festival Zinegoak, which celebrates its twenty years of existence with the presentation of an animated film series whose films address this theme on our Vimeo channel. Throughout four weeks, we will see short films that showcase a wide range of identities and LGTBIQ+ collectives through the different techniques that animation provides, and we will also have the opportunity to enjoy several short films by young creators from Basque Country.
