Lantern lights, a cinema screen under Barcelona’s starry night and the smell of a nearby barbecue. As the last beam of sunlight falls on the magical mountain of Montjuïc, Mecal Air’s projector will lit up again every Friday in some hidden spot of El Poble Espanyol, kicking off the perfect plan to start your weekend.
The summery version of Mecal, the Barcelona International Short and Animation Film Festival, is back again this year (for the 9th time already!) with a double programme: the cinematic one and the culinary one. Each week a different theme will determine both the short film selection and the gastronomic offer, with the barbecue as the main star.
A feast for the five senses joining together the freshest and most creative short films (with sessions devoted to the horror genre, sex, comedy and even a Freaky Month) and delicious charcoal-broiled and grilled recipes.
Mecal Air Barcelona 2017 will take place every Friday in June (except for 2 and 16 June), July and August, and the first two Fridays of September.
