Yesterday, Wednesday, the Fundación Mediterráneo classroom in Benidorm hosted the premiere of the short film 'Why Do Girls Cry?', directed by Claudia Ortega and produced by Entre las piedras Films, which was the winner of the 2023 edition of the Skyline Film Festival 'Shortpitch' Contest. The Councilor for Culture of the Benidorm City Council, Jaime Jesús Pérez, explained that “as established by the rules of the contest, this short was filmed in the city last October and November and has now been released within the programming. of this eighth edition of the festival, with which we complete a cycle that opened and is completed in Benidorm.” Likewise, the councillor has congratulated its author, the producer and the protagonists for the “magnificent result” of this work.

The winner of the contest, 'Why Do Girls Cry?', won a prize in kind valued at nearly 13,000 euros to carry out the project and film it in Benidorm, counting on collaboration at all times and with the support of Benidorm Film Office.

Both of them are accompanied in the cast by other young people from Benidorm who are fond of acting, who along with the protagonists also participated in the premiere and paraded along the 'red carpet' of the Skyline.

After the premiere of the winner of the last edition, the program of the Skyline Benidorm Film Festival, directed by Bea Hernández from Benidorm, hosts this Thursday the exhibition before the jury of the 'ShortPitch' finalist projects of 2024, whose awards ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. in the Fundación Mediterráneo Auditorium.
