    9th, simultaneously in eight cities around the world (Buenos Aires, Kioto, Bangkok, Cabo City,

    Berna, Moscow, Egypt, and San José). The shnit provides an ideal platform for the creation of

    an audiovisual and multicultural community. The deadline for this event was initially June 1st,

    however it was decided that the deadline would be entended to Monday, June 20th. The festival

    will accept short films of any production technique with the only limitation being that the

    submission is under 40 minutes long, including credits.

    “We want to invite all Costa Rican producers and directors to venture out, share their

    stories and send their short films to the shnit,” said Josué Fischel, director of the Community

    Audiovisual deleFOCO and the shnit festival in San José. Short films registered will participate

    simultaneously in two categories of competition: Made in Costa Rica and shnit Open. The

    category Made in Costa Rica applies to Costa Rican directors and producers or those who

    have made short films in Costa Rica. Entrance to this category is free and automatically

    qualifies entries to be selected for the international competition, the shnit Open.

    As for the shnit Open, the award is a total of $100,000 between five categories: shorts with a duration of

    under 10 minutes, shorts with a duration of under 20 minutes, shorts with a duration of under 40
