“CortoCircuito,” the Latino short film festival organized by Diana Vargas and the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center of New York University, will run from Thursday, October 23 through Saturday, October 25, at the Center, located at 53 Washington Square South. The festival will present some of the most thought-provoking Latin American, Spanish, and Latino-U.S. shorts produced in the last five years. Animated and fictional short films as well as documentaries and experimental works will be featured. It is free and open to the pubic, and all films are English-subtitled. For further information and a schedule of all films to be screened, visit www.nyu.edu/kjc/cortocircuito or www.cortocircuito.us.

Over 50 titles will be presented, with films from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Cuba, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Spain, Venezuela, Uruguay, and the U.S.

The festival opens on October 23, at 7 p.m., with a two-part program, “Kid at Heart,” a “kid”-protagonist-driven short film selection where humor and sometimes cruelty are the keys to discover our “hidden child.” The second half features a selection of short films that have won awards at such important film festivals as Cannes, Guadalajara, Havana, and Mar del Plata.
