Here, a student jury, chaired by a prestigious filmmaker, will choose the winner of the Panavision Award. Moreover, a specific jury formed by students from Basque schools, coordinated by a teacher from the University of Mondragon and chaired by the Development Management Department of Orona Fundazioa, will give the Orona Award to the most cutting-edge short film in the Meeting. The meeting is jointly organized by the Festival and Tabakalera-International Centre for Contemporary Culture; counts with the collaboration of Panavision and Orona Fundazioa and is part of the San Sebastian 2016 European Capital of Culture legacy.

Love letters, ridiculous love letters, old letters from ridiculous lovers, and a pursuable girl. Then, there’s running in the swimming leddons, in college academies, in the empty lots of suburban Buenos Aires. Dedications, interviews, empty avenues, sketches, and militants. And in the end, two kids in the street, afar, screaming and kissing.
