Fundación Repsol works with different initiatives to raise awareness and promote the inclusion of people with disabilities. This is why Fundación Repsol supports the JamesonNotodofilmfest festival, Spain's first online short film festival, through its Breaking down Barriers award. The award, first granted during last year's festival, is aimed at short films that seek to raise public awareness about the need to offer equal opportunities in the broad range of communities that make up our society.

Consisting of a cash prize of 1500 euros, the award was given to Sara Bamba Alía's short film La violencia normal (Normal Violence), one of the 88 shorts selected for the 15th edition of the festival. The winning short gathers the true testimonies of women who have suffered some form of male violence at one point in their lives.

A total of 66 shorts were submitted to the previous festival. The winner on that occasion was Juan Ruiz Alonso's El tiempo de los ángeles (The Time of Angels), which offers a glimpse at the daily life of a woman who cares for Alzheimer's patients, one of the unsung jobs carried out by thousands of people in our country.

The Jameson Notodofilmfest festival was created in 2001 to support young film-makers and offer them the opportunity to showcase their work online, tearing down film production and distribution barriers.

This initiative by Fundación Repsol is part of its Awareness for Integration programme, which is committed to promoting diversity and equal opportunities for everyone in society. This way, the foundation undertakes different initiatives to promote inclusion and the participation of people with disabilities in the art and culture sector.
