The submissions period for the 16th JamesonNotodofilmfest, the online film shorts festival, is now closed. A total of 811 shorts have been submitted and are hoping to win €40 000 in prizes.

For the third consecutive year, the festival will include Fundación Repsol's Breaking Down Barriers Award, which promotes original, unprecedented content that raises awareness about the need for equal opportunities among different groups in society.

A total of 90 short films have been submitted in this category, for which Fundación Repsol will award a prize of €1500. The shorts can be viewed on the festival's website.

Last year, 88 short films were presented and the winner was La violencia normal (Normal Violence) by Sara Bamba, which gathered the real-life testimonies of women who have suffered some form of male violence in their lives.

This year, Sara Bamba will be the patron of honour for the prize, for which she has created Caleidoscopio (Kaleidoscope), a short film that gives a voice to women with disabilities who have suffered gender violence.

The winners will be announced on 31st May.
