Mission / description Mecal Pro, the Barcelona International Short and Animation Film Festival, will celebrate its 21st edition this year. With more than 5,000 short films submitted annually, Mecal has become one of the most important festivals of its field in Spain. Due to its international scope and quality programming, Mecal regularly benefits from grants awarded by various Spanish and international public cultural institutions.

Mecal is strongly committed to promoting the exhibition and promotion of audiovisual creations in the short format, not only with the public, but also in having creators and distributors meet through different activities. Mecal is also devoted to foster emerging talent, by holding events and awards specially aimed at young creators. In this sense, it also works as a short film promotion network, organising screenings both at a national and an international level, collaborating with festivals, embassies, and institutions around the world.
