During the presentation, the filmmakers expressed their gratitude to Seminci for the great opportunity of them taking part in the festival. Amandine’s director Juan Carlos Mostaza said that «the film is about having control, and it is structured so it deals mainly with uncertainty, which is the opposite of control».

«The three main goals of Nuestra Calle are telling a story about women, telling a story about sisterhood, and promoting the role of women behind the camera», explained its director Clara Santaolaya.

Finally, Best Seller, starring renowned actress Malena Alterio, is Max Lemcke’s first short film. The filmmaker, who usually directs feature films, mentioned his special relationship with Valladolid.
