31st International Short Film Festival of São Paulo

We are delighted to announce the selection of SUPERBOT amongst the 2368 films submitted in the “children/teens” category for the 31st edition of the International Short Film Festival of São Paulo.

This year, due to COVID-19, the festival will happen online at the official dates (20-30 AUG).

About the festival

The International Short Film Festival of São Paulo is one of the largest events dedicated to short films in the world. Set in São Paulo since 1990, it became a feature of the city’s cultural agenda for its broad and varied program with free projections in several theatres and culture centres across town.

The main event is focusing on International, South American and Brazilian films programs. Specific programs are put in place each year based on the films showed at the festival and suggestions from the visiting curators from larger festivals in Brazil and the world.

According to the organisers, this edition is very special due to the pandemic but for the first time ever, the festival will reach out to people outside the boundaries of São Paulo, all over Brazil, thanks to a unique virtual theatre.

Adapting to this new normal, the Festival redesigned the program and will present a smaller yet stronger selection.

Good luck to the film Superbot by Pierre-André Fontaine, Rémy Leroy and Emmanuel Pierrat!
