Call for entries!

Short film festival



MALDITO Video Poetry Festival launch this contest with the purpose to show two disciplines that, either individually or collectively, are much more isolated and forgotten as we would like. According to our experience, these disciplines are considered marginal and minor in the extent of the great European capitals, moreover in the humble towns within regional borders where its dissemination is nonexistent.

MALDITO Crew, as lovers of poetry, image and the expressive possibilities of its symbiosis, picks up the baton and propose to continue the line of action; willing to arouse interest in the Festival, reaching out to the general public and making this event great since the very beginning.

Not only MALDITO aims to be influent and popular amongst mass and social media but also want to be a reference and, what a better framework to be known rather than ABYCINE, one of the best independent film festival in Spain.

MALDITO seeks to vindicate video poetry as an art that connects people, transmits feelings and stimulates different ways to see the world. It is also a tiny contribution of enormous people to empower visual art, stopping it from being marginal and damned*

* The Spanish word for damned is MALDITO.

Postponment tag



We have created a new marker / tag for festivals that are forced to postpone their dates due to restrictions caused by the Coronavirus.


As a festival, on the "Edit" page you will find two buttons, the orange button "Postponed Festival" in case your festival varies in its celebration dates (even if you still do not know the new ones) and the green "Festival OK" which you can use to remove the postponement tag or if you already have the new definitive dates of celebration.


The filmmakers will also have access to this information in the list of festivals , once inside a postponed festival, under the title you will see an indicator that will tell you if the festival has been postponed and, in the cases where it is known, the new dates for the event.

International Festival

Short film festival

Feature film festival


The Ocejón Travel Film Festival was born in 2009 in two small villages in the Sierra Norte region of Guadalajara (Spain), promoted by a small group of neighbours concerned about attracting cinema to the rural environment, particularly the uncommercial and committed cinema that tends to have little distribution in normal theaters, but almost nothing in the villages or small towns. But also the organizers wanted the active participation of the neighbourhood, in addition to attracting the attention of people from other towns, regions and cities to know the place where we lived and share experiences.

For that reason from the beginning we tried to make it with the lowest possible budget to compensate the short economic resources with the courage and will of us and our neighbors, the human capital.

Nine years later, in 2018, the festival moved to another small town, Jesús Pobre, in the Marina Alta region (Alicante), however it retains the same spirit and original interests: we want to bring travel movies (any type) to the village.

Currently the organizers are integrated into the Association of Jesus Pobre Neighbours, which has enthusiastically welcomed the project and bets decidedly for its continuity. In 2018, coinciding with its tenth edition, it was celebrated for the first time in the skirt of the Montgó mountain.

The islands of the world, through the oceans and the continents of the planet, conceal important cultural and patrimonial wealth, as much by their variety, their specificity as by their authenticity. The islanders, being cut off from the continent, they are forced to live in osmosis with their environment, to vibrate to the rhythm of the elements of their natural setting and to dominate the rigors of their daily life by giving free rein to their creative imagination and their innovative spirit. In this perspective, music and singing and filming are the best support for the expression of their dreams, their emotions and their collective memory.
