Owing to the high number (396) and quality of the works submitted, the fifth edition of Magma is held over four days, with an attendance of more than 1000 spectators.
The jury, presided over by Carlo Virzì (musician and director), awards the Lorenzo Vecchio Prize to Éramos pocos by the Spaniard Borja Cobeaga which, some months later, receives an Oscar nomination for the Best Narrative Short Film.
Great success is also achieved by the two special sections which Magma creates through the collaboration of two prestigious institutions: FAMU (Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague) and ACE (Spanish Short Film Agency).
Famu and Ace present a short film selection that enriches the festival programme offered to the audience.
