Fabien Riggall to judge FEC Reus European Short Film Festival
Future Shorts founder and Creative Director, Fabien Riggall, joins Jamón Jamón director Bigas Luna as part of the European Jury at FEC Reus, XII European Short Film Festival taking place 3-6 March in Reus, Spain.
Festival Europeu de Curtmetratges (European Short Film Festival) FEC Cambrils-Reus began as a result of the merger of two festivals: the Cambrils FEC (which in 2007 celebrated its 9th anniversary) and the Reus FEC (in its 6th year). So the Cambrils-Reus FEC has two venues: in Cambrils, where the films in the spanish competition are shown, and Reus, where European shorts can be seen. The rest of the sessions and parallel activities are divided between the two localities.
The new FEC is a festival devoted to European short films and contemporary videocreation. The FEC Project sees the short film as a means rather than an end, so it is open not just to filmmakers but also to visual or plastic artists who use film as a language in which to express themselves. A European panel of judges from the world of cinema and the arts makes the FEC a festival with its own particular and unique criteria within the panorama of film festivals.
The FEC Project, however, carries on with the spirit of those older festivals and has become a forum that brings together productions from every part of Europe and a festival that not only provides the opportunity to see the best in short films but is also a meeting point for directors, the public and students of film, since all the directors came to the FEC to present the productions they have entered.
