Given the current situation that requires us to maintain healthy social distancing, CortoCircuito Latino Shortfest of NY, in partnership with the Institute Cervantes of NY, will celebrate an online minifestival of short films from Spain, Latin America, and Latinos in the U.S. that have participated in previous editions of the festival.


Corto Circuito was formed to showcase short films made by filmmakers from and about Latin America, Spain and the United States. The festival is unique in its mission to promote a wider and deeper understanding of the roots, life and diverse cultures of the Spanish and Portuguese speaking communities.


Each year, the selections include animated and fictional short films, as well as documentaries and experimental works, many of which will be U.S and N.Y. premieres. The Festival involves multiple programs, Q&A’s and fiestas to celebrate the contributions Latino cultures have made to New York’s cultural landscape.

We want to thank all the film artists who submitted their films in this and previous years. Thanks to your creativity and honest display of the social, economic and cultural issues, the festival has reached nine years providing viewers with a glimpse of life in Latin America, Spain and U.S.
