LA GRAN PANTALLA, is an intergenerational cinematic meeting space that seeks to dismantle stereotypes of the elderly through cinema. Thus, having as a thematic focus the representation of the elderly, we look for stories that allow us to generate new readings and discourses about it, going beyond the conventional representations that are usually associated with this stage of life.

We are interested in films that address the issue of the elderly from diverse perspectives: migration, sexuality, feminism, LGBTIQ+ community, among others

In this first version we will have a non-competitive section of International Feature Films and a unique category of International Short Films competition.
Below are the conditions that the films must fulfill for their application.

c. The short films must have a maximum duration of 30 (thirty) minutes, credits included.
