During the month of April, the Cervantes Institute's Vimeo channel will present the work of four filmmakers, in collaboration with Alcine, the Alcalá de Henares film festival, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020 and is one of the oldest festivals in Spain. In order to celebrate the anniversary of the festival, the cycle proposes a dialogue between two works (a short and a feature film) by each of the filmmakers selected from among its participants. In this way, in addition to showcasing the work of Alcine, it shows how some filmmakers work in one format or another according to their interests and the stories they have to tell. The exhibition includes the work of directors Juanjo Giménez and Álex Montoya, director Belén Macías and producer María del Puy Alvarado, four artists who have presented their work at the festival - known for its short film program, although it also includes feature films - throughout their careers.
