Vejer International Short Film Festival begins today

From today until September 11, Vejer hosts the V International Short Film Festival, Ahora es corto, which is proudly sponsored by the Califa Group.

Among other initiatives on the agenda, tomorrow Saturday at 22:00 La Tetería del Califa will host the private screening of the film Broken Poet by Emilio Ruiz Barrachina, “a film that has not yet been released in Spain and that tells the story of Elliott Murphy, a musician now considered a cult and in which artists such as Bruce Springsteen, his wife Patti Scialfa, among others, participate, and has a spectacular soundtrack. I hope you go to see it and that you like it,” says the film’s director.  

For the occasion, we will offer some of the most famous cocktails of the cinema.

  • Cosmopolitan: Sex in New York.
  • Manhattan: Con faldas y a lo loco.
  • White Russian: The Big Lebowski.
  • Vesper: James Bond.

“A world without culture is a world without a future. How would be a life without movies, theatre or tv? We have seen it during the pandemic. We have been able to watch TV, but this does not allow us to see human expression and closeness to the public. You can go to the cinema with friends, listen to the reactions of the people sitting around you or share your own with friends and strangers. In fact, at the Califa Group we have created experiences that go beyond sleeping in a hotel or dining in a restaurant, it is also a cultural experience. Each Califa hotel or rental house is able to offer an authentic experience. Each restaurant, bar or café conveys different emotions. It is art and architecture, in an incomparable setting such as Vejer. Everything has a story to tell. It is a multicultural journey without leaving the town. Culture means so much!” says James Stuart, Califa’s CEO.

Art and design at Plaza 18

Short films, courses, concerts and even a contest that will put into play the creativity of the participants. A real party dedicated to the seventh art that will end on September 11, with the awards ceremony at the San Francisco Theater in Vejer. Among other categories, James Stuart, CEO of the Califa Group, one of the main sponsors of the event, will present the award for Best Short Film according to the votes of the public. The winner will be able to enjoy two nights at the Hotel La Casa del Califa and two gastronomic experiences at El Jardín del Califa. The final touch will be the gala dinner to be held at the emblematic restaurant of Vejer, El Jardín del Califa.
