• Short films by film students are screened.

Tijuana, Baja California.- As part of the Emergente BC (Emerging BC) program that monthly exhibits university projects at the Carlos Monsiváis Cinematheque in the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT), ten short films created by students of the Cinematography Degree at the University of the Californias International (UDCI) were screened, as reported by Abelardo Vázquez Ramos, Director of Creative Industries of the Ministry of Economy and Innovation.

The titles presented were: “No sé cómo decirte esto pero, ¿te acuerdas de tu amigo?” directed by Rodolfo Mora; “Romero” by Chelsea Soria and Diana Campos; “Después de ti” by Monserrat Camacho; “La otra” by Midalia Soto; “Legión extática de monjas demacradas de faz hierática” by Ulises Martínez and Valeria Fernández; “La carta” by Ariel Rangel; “Música para desaparecer” by Marti Chávez; “Baquetas” by Luis Ángel Prado; “Hematofobia” by Andrea Álvarez and Axel Puente; y “Pesadilla en la calle jengibre” by Omar Ventura and Enrique Aguirre.

The short films included various genres, techniques, and formats such as mockumentary, documentary, suspense, drama, and stop-motion, and after their screening, a question and answer session was held with the directors, some of whom had already graduated from the institution. "This program is designed so that students from various schools begin to socialize their projects," said Javier Espinoza, Baja Film Commissioner who created the Emergente BC program, which prior to its sessions at the Carlos Monsiváis Cinematheque, were held in a brewery in the city of Tijuana.

He added that the activities of the program were suspended due to the contingency caused by COVID-19, and during that pause some exhibitions were held digitally through FilminLatino, but now that face-to-face activities can be carried out with the due sanitary measures, support was requested from CECUT and it granted the space for the universities.

Emergente BC will continue with its monthly programming with the participation of the works of the students of the Bachelor of Audiovisual Media of the Faculty of Arts of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC) Campus Mexicali, on May 26, at 6:00 p.m.
