The Lanzarote International Film Festival wrapped its 24th edition on 25 May, once again consolidating its position as one of the world’s foremost gatherings for short films. After several weeks of events and screenings, the festival’s climax came with the handing out of various awards to the winners in the five official sections: International Short Fiction, National Short Fiction, Canarian Shorts, Animated Shorts and Short Documentaries. This edition of the festival was especially noteworthy because of the record number of works presented: a total of 2,605 short films of more than 100 different nationalities, 59 of which were in competition.
