The organization is immersed in the selection of the 40 works that will compete in the contest sections and that will be screened from June 25 to July 4.


Skyline Benidorm Film Festival has launched its new website and has released the image of its 5th edition, in which a participation record has been reached with a total of 455 short films registered. The Councilor for Culture, Jaime Jesús Pérez, and the director of the Festival, Beatriz Hernández, have explained that on the new website << users will be able to find in Spanish, Valencian and English all the information related to this fifth edition that takes place from June 25 to July 4, 2021 >>.

Both have indicated that << the design of the web revolves around the image of this 5th edition of the festival that is the work of Rafa Morata. As in previous years and a clear allusion to the name of the festival, the iconic ‘skyline’ of Benidorm is present, to which is added our island, element and hallmark of the city >>, they added.

On the content of the web, there is a section dedicated to the history of the Skyline Benidorm Film Festival and information on the bases and the team in charge of the organization. In addition, a specific space has been created on the 5th edition where, in the near future, the list of short films selected in the Official and European Sections will be published, the novelty of this 2021. This same section will also progressively inform about the complementary activities of the festival, the script contest, the Shorpitch, the composition of the jury and the exhibitions related to the contest. And while waiting for all the information on the 5th edition, users can see how the previous deliveries of the Skyline were.

The Councilor for Culture has pointed out that << with the presentation of the website and the image and poster of the 5th edition, the Skyline warms up for this new installment in which the event has been internationalized and in which it has captured massively the attention of creators and distributors, as evidenced by the significant volume of short films that have been presented >>.

The director of the Festival, for her part, has advanced that the organization is already << immersed in the visualization of the 455 short films received to select the 40 works that will compete in the four sections of the contest >>.
