Subtravelling promotes emerging talent
Subtravelling is the international showcase that exhibits the creative talent of Barcelona filmmakers to the world through short films.
The festival uses public transport as a pretext to promote creativity, expressiveness and awareness, and to discover the latest filmmaking trends.
The aim: to boost the international visibility of emerging filmmaking talent.
SMIFF, the connection with Seoul
There is only one other festival in the world with the same characteristics as Subtravelling: the Seoul Metro International Subway Film Festival (SMIFF).
With the motto ‘90 seconds of imagination, enjoy the metro’, the SMIFF turns the metro into a moving theatre, where short films of up to 90 seconds are screened. Its aim is to help create a cosmopolitan cultural environment where anyone can enjoy films in places other than cinemas.
That is why, since 2016, Subtravelling and SMIFF have been adding synergies with a clear commitment to boosting young talent and being the international platform for up-and-coming filmmakers.
Thanks to this alliance, the finalist short films of SMIFF are screened in Barcelona, and the winner of Subtravelling travels to Seoul to attend the screening of their short.
How to participate
If you are looking for an international showcase to show your talent to the world, take part in Roda a TMB. This is the section of the festival aimed at creators and directors that wants to discover and boost local filmmaking talent. You have until January to shoot and present your short film. Dare to experiment, make your debut or give your career a definitive boost. If you want to enjoy a marathon of short films and have the option to win prizes just by voting for the shorts you like best, take part in La Mostra. During the month of December, the films taking part in Roda a TMB will be screened, along with a selection of international short films, plus a selection of short films from the SMIFF festival, in a bid to export local talent and import talent from everywhere else, and to make it available to public transport users.
