The Community of Madrid Supports Short Films

The importance of short films within the film industry is key, as they are both a learning pathway for professional development and a true showcase for the audiovisual talent of new creators.

The Community of Madrid supports the production of short films through production grants for fiction , animation and documentary short films. La Comunidad de Madrid apoya la producción de cortometrajes a través de las ayudas de producción a cortometrajes de ficción, animación y documental.

The commitment to support short films is materialised in distribution support programmes such as ‘Madrid en Corto’, organised by the Regional Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sports and managed by the ECAM. The Community also promotes the exhibition of short films through the Madrid Short Film Week, a nationally renowned event.

Madrid en Corto

This is a programme promoted by the Regional Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sports of the Community of Madrid and managed by the ECAM's Distribution Department for the distribution of short films created by Madrid production companies.
Since 2005, eight short films have been selected by a professional jury from among the projects supported by the Community of Madrid, to be distributed nationally and internationally for a period of one year.

This initiative is a way to support new filmmakers and producers and a clear commitment to the dissemination of audiovisual productions created in the region, with a presence in international markets such as the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and the Short Film Corner of the Marché du Film in Cannes.

Madrid Short Film Week

The Short Film Week of the Community of Madrid has become one of the national benchmark events for the dissemination of short films after 23 editions.

Its programme includes an Official Section screening the short films supported by the Community of Madrid during the year, as well as a Professional Forum that includes a Co-Production Forum and a Distribution Meeting, with the aim of bringing together the various stakeholders of the short film industry, promoting coordination for future projects and analysing aspects of interest for producers, directors and professionals working in the short film industry.

A true celebration of short films to bring cinema closer to all audiences, showcasing the best talent of our region with the collaboration of the Cultural Centres and Libraries of the municipalities of Madrid.
