Promotional card of MIRADA CORTA Short Film Festival

After an incredible edition last January with 8 Live Screenings at the Cine Tonala and Le Cinema IFAL and 30 Programs at Visiones Únicas, USD 5000 in Cash Prizes, 30 Q&A's with international artists, networking cocktails and all sold out sessions, SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE NEW SEASON.

Mexico city is an icon of Latin American Independent Cinema and Mirada Corta presents the most outstanding films each season, inviting the audience to enjoy the diverse genres proposed in each competition: narrative, documentary, experimental, animation, horror, and comedy.

With a dedicated space for filmmakers, industry professionals, and special guests, the aim of MIRADA CORTA is to create an encounter that fosters creative and production possibilities in a relaxed and professional environment. It is an opportunity to establish connections within the framework of an independent red carpet.

Each screening is presented by moderators and concludes with Cast and Crew Q&A's sessions.

The jury is composed of filmmakers and distinguished film professionals: Percival Argüero Mendoza, a graduate of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Cinematographic Training Center, winner of the Silver Medal at the Academy Student Oscars; director Rommel Villa, winner of the Student Oscar; producer Chantal Rodríguez, recently nominated to the Ariel Awards and winner at the DOCSMX festival with her short film "El Viajero Subterráneo"; Alfredo Castruita from Los Angeles Film School, known for his feature film "POTOSÍ," winner as Best Mexican Film at the Guanajuato festival and three times nominee to the Ariel Awards; director and cinematographer Sergio Ruiz Velasco de Alba creator of the film "Longings yet to be" and young director Diego Sepulveda, former student at the École International de Création Audiovisuelle et Réalisation in Paris, the TISCH School of the Arts in New York, and the Academy of Arts in San Francisco. Completing the jury for 2023/2024 are Léa Soler, a young French filmmaker and director of the acclaimed short film "Corpúsculo," and Andrea Porras, a producer renowned for her work on "Sweet Potatoes", a Student Oscar winning film.

The jury will select the winners of each competition and award two prizes at the end of the festival to promote the production of short films:
Grand Jury Prize: USD 1500.
Young Promise Award: USD 1000.
Additionally, the audience will have the opportunity to vote and choose the "People's Choice Award," which will also receive a cash prize of USD 1000.

All filmmakers registered in the competition will receive, regardless of the results, a "Filmmaker Pass" for the festival with access to all screenings, Q&A sessions, conferences, red carpet events, photocall, and cocktails throughout the festival.
