The Skyline is the "breath of fresh air so much needed these days," said the mayor. A festival that has been able to confront "the pandemic and all the harshness of confinement" to organize the edition in which "more short films have been presented". "Benidorm is happy" -he has underlined-, when opening "its doors to audiovisual production" with many difficulties "but with amazing results".
Toni Pérez has applauded the organization of the Skyline and has predicted a splendid future with many years ahead "worshiping cinema and audiovisual!" and above all “to culture” in Benidorm, a city that “already has its entire offer covered in all the arts that you can imagine”.
For her part, Bea Hernández recalled that "from tomorrow" the official section will be available on the 'streaming' platform Filmin, specializing in author cinema, "with the 25 finalist short films" from which the prizes of the three sections will come out officials: animation, fiction and documentary. The parallel student section will also take place through YouTube. Hernández has also announced that free subscriptions for this online cinema platform will be raffled through the festival's social networks.
