The 23rd edition of Mecal Pro returns with presential format, establishing and ensuring the pertinent security measures in all its activities.


The 23rd edition of Mecal , Barcelona International Short Film and Animation Festival, opts to organize the event in a hybrid way from March 11 to 28, after a last edition online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Much of the festival will be held so face , complied with the relevant safety measures in Arts Santa Monica . Likewise, we will have virtual support in this edition.


The organization of Mecal Pro 2021 begins with the animation week from March 11 to 14; then comes the week of fiction from March 18 to 21, and finally, the festival ends with the documentary week from March 25 to 28. Each week has sections for competition; international, oblique, animation and documentary , where different juries will award prizes to the selected short films.


Mecal continues to be a space for protest, debate, especially in its parallel sections focused on the female universe ( Womart ), ecology ( Go Green ) or Immigration . Likewise, Mecal continues to position itself in favor of freedoms and rejects extreme right-wing movements. In addition, the LGBTI + section is maintained , in which this group is the protagonist. In the different sections, we will enjoy a great variety of short films from different countries , as well as many other parallel activities.
