Tijuana, B.C..- With the works that resulted from the “Humanidades en Corto” Rally carried out by students of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC), Campus Tijuana, the third season of EMERGENTE BC began at the Carlos Monsiváis Cineteca of the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT), informed Abelardo Vázquez Ramos, Director of Creative Industries of the Ministry of Economy and Innovation (SEI). In total, they exhibited 11 short films by 14 directors and directors.

EMERGENTE BC is a program generated by the Baja California Film Commission in collaboration with the CECUT Cineteca, to exhibit the works of schools with specific enrollment on audiovisual and/or related production, in order to encourage local talent.

The screened titles were “Ezfrenia” directed by Bryan Soto Ríos, “News from the war” by Brandon Aldair Medina Dennis, “La Nota” by Victoria Carolina Ortega Contreras and José María Covarrubias Cuautle, “I'm not sure where to start” by Juan Manuel Charles Reynoso, “Cuerda pagana” by Manuel Iván Castillo Aguilar, “Crónica: Temporada de Calabazas” by Cristian Isaac Villalobos Castillo, “Contraste y brillo” by Efrén Fabián Verdugo Cortez, “Tú, Yo y Ella” by Kimberly Camila Solano Acosta, “Feliz Cumpleaños” by Luis Alonso González Montes, “Sobre-pensando” by André Aceretto and Juan Mancilla, and “Día uno” directed by Jesús Alejandro Rodríguez Saucedo and Juan Sebastián Hernández Jiménez, as reported by Javier Espinoza, Baja Film Commissioner of the SEI, responsible for the program.

Regarding the exhibition, Enrique Martínez Apodada, the Rally Coordinator commented: “Emergente BC was the perfect and necessary space for this rally that has been organized for more than 7 years at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the UABC. This is the first time that shorts made at this event are projected on a screen like the one at the CECUT’s Cineteca, and I think there is no better way to see the projects than this, in community and in such a beautiful and important space. Without a doubt, I think it will be a great motivation for many students to continue exploring their cinematographic perspectives”.

For the next edition of the EMERGENTE BC program, the work of the Lázaro Cárdenas Federal Preparatory School will be considered, on February 23, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.
