As part of the "Korrika Kulturala" we will be collaborating with Topagunea once more, and we will be screening a selection of 9 short films. Needless to say, we do believe this is yet another very fitting event to go with the "korrika kulturala" in London, and we anticipate a very interesting evening. The screening will be in Oxford House on Tuesday April 12th at around 7.30 pm. Please do contact us if you want to find out more about this event.

This is the seventh edition of "Short Films" organised by Topagunea (Euskara Elkarteen Federazioa - Federation of Basque language Associations) and their plan is to screen these movies in at least 26 places in the Basque Country and in several places overseas, including London. The films are all in Euskara-Basque language. There is quite a variety of films, including short-movies, documentals, animations, etc. In their own words, their aim is to promote the world of "audio-visuals" in Euskara.

All the movies were made in 2009 and Topagunea has made a point of including works by both, established and renown film directors (Asier Altuna y Angel Aldarondo) as well as some promising newcomers (Kepa Errasti, Jon Artola, Saio Aizpurua "Txintetilla", Aitor Artola, Irune Gurtubai e Ibai Vigil-Escalera).
