The Shortest Day
December 20th, 11.59 pm.
21st of December is a day full of symbolism: the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, celebrated by many civilizations as a day of renewal. It is the perfect day to celebrate short films, which heavily contribute to the renewal of film production.
“The Shortest Day” is an event that originated in France in 2011 and is currently celebrated in more than 20 countries. Either online, in cinemas or in different public or community venues, the viewing of short films during this short but intense day offers the public the opportunity to discover numerous film directors and their works. In Guimarães, CAAA partners with the Short Film Agency in a celebration that lasts all night long with short film presentations and several DJ sets.
