Next July 6th (Friday) and 7th (Saturday), 2012, will mark the beginning of the MikroFilm Festival. The beautiful town of Plentziawill host this short film festival conceived as a classic outlet for film noir.

The Motive

  1. Because MikroFilm Short Festival is the only place in Bizkaia (Basque Country) where film noir lovers can watch short films otherwise inaccessible.
  2. Because it is a homage to our beloved friend, film noir lover and short film photography director, better known by friends and family as “Mikro”, who last July 7th, 2011 went on a journey with no luggage. This short film festival is our way to cherish his memory.
  3. Because we wish to offer the citizens of Plentzia (18 km away from Bilbao) and outsiders a chance to share two noir nights in a beautiful outdoors setting (Plentzia`s church square).
  4. Because we exist on the basis of luck and a temporary contract. There are always side effects to crime and injustice. The victim passes away but the rest of us live on, and all we can do is organize an ambitious short film festival to die for.
  5. Because we love film noir short films and because Plentzia is the perfect setting.
