Boluda Corporación Marítima is collaborating in the Jameson Notodofilmfest short film competition held in the Riojan locality of Arnedo, from 13 to 22 october 2016, by donating a 20-ft container to host El Cortito Oscuro, a space turned into a cinema to screen the 14th edition’s 21 winning shorts.
As part of their corporate social responsibility program, Boluda Corporación Marítima supports this type of event as an initiative to back entrepreneurship and help organise sports, cultural and social events held in Spain.
Organized by the Irish distillers Jameson and Arnedo town hall, La Rioja, audiences during this film festival can watch a free screening of the 21 winning shorts, all lasting less than three minutes, in the Plaza España between 6 and 8:30 p.m. (with an additional screening between 12:00 and 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays).
At this 14th edition of the Jameson Notodofilmfest Awards, 834 short films were presented and 120 were selected as finalists. Among the major awards are the Jameson Grand Prize for Best Film, won for “Estribillo” directed by César Tormo, who received 6,000 euros and a trip to Dublin; and the Jameson Award for Triple Distillation Best Film, awarded to “Time Lase” directed by Christian Avilés, who won 1,500 euros and a trip to Dublin.
With fourteen editions to date, the festival is well-known in Spain as one of the most popular cinema events on the internet. Jameson Notodofilmfest has achieved high international participation and audiences: more than 13,500 short films from 38 different countries were entered in the competition, with 56 million viewers and prizes in different categories.
