Firstly, thank you to Melanie Belmonte, the Femme Filmmakers Festival Delegate, who was a huge part of selecting these films. And boy, was it tough. Finding just 20 short films for the official selection from countless, excellent films was tricky business.

So, as well as those 20 shorts, speed across the 10 days of the online festival, are 23 feature films and a bunch of out of competition shorts. Our plan is, of course, to showcase all of these films – be it with streaming info, reviews, interviews, podcast appearances and discussions, extensive promotional activities etc.

Take at look at what’s on offer, and make sure your diary is clear from 20th to 29th September.

Abbey Road sigue ahí

Alfonso Vinuesa ••• | Escritor. Coordinador Cultura Ayto. Móstoles (Madrid)

Abbey Road sigue ahí.
El sargento Pepper canta A day in the life.
Lucy, mientras, contonea el cielo con el movimiento sinuoso de su cuerpo,
sonríe y lanza un beso.

Brian fotografía una y otra vez a los cuatro de beatleland.
Busca sombras pero, ah, hombre elegante, solo encontrarás luz.
Abbey Road sigue ahí
y eso nunca lo podrás cambiar.

Ya no somos figuras de cera
en el circo pop de los sueños de las emociones.
Ringo susurra, nadie le escucha.
Pete, detrás del árbol, vigila.
¿Alguien sabe quién es Pete?  
Paul y John tararean su próximo viaje sonoro psicodélico.

Abbey Road sigue ahí. 
John esboza una sonrisa, se detiene.
Para la comitiva antes de terminar la travesía por el paso de cebra,
que es el camino de sus vidas,
el camino de todas nuestras vidas.
Retira de su larga nariz las gafas redondas y, desde esa barba poblada, canosa,
mira hacia arriba.
¿Aún seguimos siendo más importantes? Paul sonríe
Jesús es ahora nuestro productor

Abbey Road sigue ahí
Es tan solo un día en nuestras vidas
