"Contraplano" Iberoamerican short film festival starts tomorrow (Monday March 31) at UGA

[The following text has been copied and pasted from an announcement forwarded to me.]

IBEROAMERICAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL FROM SEGOVIA (SPAIN) AT UGA AT THE STUDENT LEARNING CENTER, ROOM 171, ON MARCH 31st, APRIL 1st, AND APRIL 2nd at 7:00 pm

FREE ENTRANCE

The goal of this festival is to show to the University and Athens communities a wide range of short films made and produced recently in Spain and Latin America. Short films are not usually available at movie theaters, much less those made in Spain and Latin America. Nevertheless, this format is the way new directors start their careers. This would be a great opportunity to find out what the new generations of film makers are doing in both areas of the Spanish speaking world.

Films will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles.

These films were part of Contraplano 07, an International Short Film Festival held annually in Segovia, Spain.
José Luís Farias, director, producer, and organizer of that Festival, will come to Athens, and will lead the discussions after the screenings.

Join us on April 1st at Little Kings (Downtonwn Athens), from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm. There will be a screening of the short film "Limoncello", appetizers and live music.

This event is made possible with the support of:
Contraplano, The Department of Romance Languages, The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, Dr. John Ross, Cachivache (Performance in Spanish), Cali´n´Titos, Little Kings, and Espresso Royale.
