Destroy Madrid

A Spanish revolt?

The fourth round of the Hellfire Short Film Festival beamed its way to Lime Bar Cafe on Wednesday evening.The evening began with a promotional video highlighting all of the films we’ve previously screened before the first entry of the evening was shown.


The short films that made the cut into the evening’s playlist were as follows:

Strayed Outta Compton (Matt Clifford)
Fridgemania (Emmanuel Dubois)
Human (Patrick Ryder)
Destroy Madrid (Joseba Alfaro)
Gonna Be A Soldier (Jon Lewis)
María Fernanda in Time (Xavier Pijuan)
Incoming Call (Eoin Cleland)

Throughout the evening the audience voted on each short film based on six criteria: Direction; Acting; Editing; Story/Script; Visuals; and Soundtrack with each receiving a score out of five. All six criteria are then counted up for an overall score out of 30. The winning short film goes straight through to the Hellfire Short Film Festival Grand Final that will be held next summer as part of the main Hellfire International Film Festival. The highest scoring second and third placed films will also go through as Wildcards.


With a score of 23.33 the winner of the Hellfire Short Film Festival Round Four is DESTROY MADRID by Joseba Alfaro.

In second was Incoming Call by Eoin Cleland (23.13) and third was Maria Fernanda in Time by Xavier Pijuan (22.89). Both join the wildcard table.


The Fifth Round of the Hellfire Short Film Festival is January 11th 2017 at Lime Bar Cafe.
