About Curtas Fest

Festival Internacional de Cine e Banda Deseñada de Vilagarcía

Born as the Amateur Film Festival of Vilagarcía in 1973, the Curtas Film Fest has been held uninterruptedly for 46 years in Vilagarcía de Arousa. It’s the film festival dean of Galicia and one of the contests with more tradition of Spain. Next to its forty-seventh anniversary, which began as an amateur cinema competition  it was consolidated as one of the most prestigious festivals in the state devoted to Cinema and Comic.

This year the festival will be celebrating two leit-motivs: the 50th anniversary of the arrival of humanity to the moon and Magic and Legends, with a tribute to the creation of J.K. Rowling Harry Potter.

The poster of this edition will be the work of the Galician artist Nekro, and will be presented in June 2019
