Shortcup World Film Festival

International Short Film Festival.


Short cup is organized by the Cultural Bodega bar. It s a cinematographic competition issued in eliminatory style, the popular jury votes for the films in the brackets, until the final round where the winner is chosen. The festival's main purpose is to merge a competitive film showcase with the casual ambient of a bar. This proposition comes with the idea of breaking the bias of the passive spectator, bringing sayd spectators to a social and easygoing situation, where one can interact with others, talk about the films they've just watched and drink some beer.

Bodega Cultural is a free and open space, available to the public, where art exhibitions of all kinds are shown. It’ a location where artists can show their creations, be it visual art, performance art or music, on the open stage or as an exhibition. Bodega Cultural is also a bar where locally brewed beers and cachaças are sold. It’s located in Lagoa Da Conceiçao, the cultural and touristic center of Florianopolis – SC Brazil.
