Inside the Box Screening at The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre
Inside the Box will be shown on Saturday 21 December at The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The screening is scheduled at 20:00pm at the CCCB Auditorium and admission is free. Spanish fans of the suspense-drama short-film starring Summer Glau, Regina King and Wilson Bethel are all invited. This screening has a special meaning for Inside the Box's director David Martin Porras, who went to Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona and in his own words "spent so many evenings in this wonderful culture centre".
The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) is a multidisciplinary institution that can be defined as a centre for urban culture. The activities it organises include exhibitions, musical programmes, dance, courses, conferences, urban itineraries, etc. The centre is dedicated to the city and everything relating to it, and also promotes artistic creation based on new technologies and languages, research into exhibition formats, and debate.
For the record, Inside the Box won the "Best Spanish Short Film" award at the International Film Festival of Valladolid on October 2013 and won another prize at the International Short Film Festival 'Almería en Corto' on December 2013.
The short will continue its film festivals tour, and hopefully all fans will be able to see it when it will be available by VOD and DVD at a date to be determined.
Of course we will keep you updated on the dates and locations of the screenings, so stay tuned!

Arrow's 'The Scientist' is on target, hits series highs in adults 18-34
'The Scientist', inwhich soon-to-be-The-Flash Barry Allen was being introduced, notched 3.24 million viewers, marking Arrow's most-watched episode of the season, and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, tying its season high (achieved in episode 2.06 "Keep Your Enemies Closer").
This is also good news for 'The Flash' spin-off that The CW will be shooting (the stand-alone pilot episode will be directed by David Nutter, who also directed the pilot for Arrow).
Here’s the press release from The CW with more infos on the various age demographics:
UPDATED – NEWS FLASH: ARROW HITS SERIES HIGH IN A18-34
ARROW Draws Most Watched Episode Since February,
Matches Series Highs in Men 18-34 and Men 18-49
as Barry Allen Arrives in Starling City
December 5, 2013 (Burbank, CA) – UPDATED: With Barry Allen making his first appearance in Starling City, The CW’s ARROW last night climbed to an all-time series high in adults 18-34 (1.2/4) and delivered its most watched episode (3.24 million) since February (2/13/13), according to national Live + Same Day Nielsen ratings for Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013.
ARROW also matched its series highs in men 18-34 (1.4/6) and men 18-49 (1.5/5), while matching its season best in adults 18-49 (1.2/4).
Versus its last original episode two weeks ago, ARROW grew +22% in total viewers, +33% in adults 18-34, +20% in adults 18-49, +56% in men 18-34, and +36% in men 18-49.
ARROW ranked #1 in the 8:00-9:00p.m. hour in men 18-34, and ranking third (tied with Fox and ahead of ABC) in adults 18-34.
Last night was The CW’s best Wednesday of the season among adults 18-34 (0.9/3). For the night, The CW was up +14% in total viewers (2.49 million) versus two weeks ago, the most recent Wednesday with regularly scheduled programming. The network was up +29% in adults 18-34 (0.9/3), +13% in adults 18-49 (0.9/3), +57% in men 18-34 (1.1/4), and +38% in men 18-49 (1.1/3). It was The CW’s best Wednesday night among men 18-34 and men 18-49 since 2/13/13.
This season, ARROW sees a +45% increase in Live + 7 Day viewing versus Live + Same Day viewing among total viewers, averaging 4.1 million viewers per episode in L+7. ARROW also sees a +47% gain in adults 18-34, and a +54% increase in adults 18-49 in L+7 versus L+SD. THE TOMORROW PEOPLE sees a +41% increase in total viewers, a +55% increase in adults 18-34, and a +54% jump in adults 18-49 compared to same day viewing.
The introduction of DC comics fan favorite Barry Allen hits its target, judging from the ratings in adult 18-34 (1.2), men 18-34 (1.4) and men 18-49 (1.5). Though this episode did not deliver better ratings than the Diggle-centric-Isabel-Oliver-hooking episode in adult 18-49.
I wonder if Arrow can keep those numbers next week. Nevertheless, things are looking good for the Flash next year. Grant Gustin is perfect in the role so far.
