Badalona Film Festival

In 2001 the 27th edition of the short film festival began, a legacy of the veteran Badalona International Film and Video Festival, founded in 1969: the FILMETS Badalona Film Festival was born.

Since then, FILMETS has been a leader, not only as an important short film festival in terms of reach and international impact, but because it has also become a meeting point for film-makers and loyal audiences.

The foremost short film makers in Catalonia and Spain have participated in FILMETS, together with renowned film talents, many of whom have subsequently made outstanding feature length films on the global stage. In 2012, FILMETS won the BISFF Prize for the best short film festival in Europe.
