‘GHOSTS’, THE CLEAR SUCCESS OF CINEPHONE’ 2020 EDITION
- 07 April, 2021
Without any doubt, the broadcasing of Cinephone Film Festival 2020 was the most special and the most curious of the history of the festival. After suffering the COVID-19 crisis, the Cinephone’s organization saw a good opportunity to turn the physical galas into a whole different experience, and that was the reason that made the first streaming experience fully broadcasted with mobile phones.
Broadcasted from Torre Barrina and presented by Juan Carlos Saloz, the gala made a full use of the upcoming technology in order to prove that we can continue working in culture despite the difficulties. And that was the key to make a whole bunch of short films shine with their own lights.
Within all the projects presented throught the year in the festival, the one that succeeded the most was Ghosts, by Diego Escobar y Natalia Varela. The short film won the Big Jury Price and the Best fiction short film, surpassing all their rivals that counted with an exquisite quality.
The fiction shows a story of a post-pandemic future, in which a mother teaches her daughter all tha experiences she leved and how those events changed the way she saw live from now on. An endearing story to look with optimism to the future.
