La Boca Del Lobo International Short Film Festival

To show and to promote the most interesting, avant-garde and hazardous movies from the international and independent cinema, transforming madrilean nights into a cross cultural place.


To attract and create new amateurs of this kind of production with an alternative offer, by generating new place for showing. These are the main objectives of this festival.

First to organize a film festival in a music club and to promote it with a new project - the touring festival - La Boca del Lobo suggests a different model of competition, by organizing itself in small places to make connections between audience and producers easier.

The aim, since its first edition in 1997, is to explore new ways in the seventh art from a different perspective, valiant; blended with the other art: music.
Workshops, forum, exhibitions and concerts are part of the festival program.

A festival escaping from the main stream ghetto.
A festival made in a cave.
A bet against who thinks: ”madrilean movida is dead!”
A project coming from the dark night, shining by itself, that pays a tribute to creators of our age.
