The Mecal family is a group of projects around cinema that was born as an international short film festival and that over time has evolved to become what it is today: a huge international short film festival with two venues, a production house, a virtual reality festival and an annual programme of open-air shorts in Barcelona, Mallorca and Ibiza.

Mecal Air is the longest open-air cinema programme of the summer in Barcelona and returns for the eleventh consecutive year to animate the nights of Poblenou. On Saturdays from 29 June until La Merce Day, the Design Hub will receive in its gardens a selection of short films that can be enjoyed free of charge from 8 pm until 11 pm. The sessions are organised by themes: Voyage Voyage, Comedy, Erotic Short Films and Terror, among others.

As always, Mecal’s directors create a round event in which, in addition to good short films, you will be able to enjoy a careful gastronomic selection and drinks bar so that you only have to worry about finding the best seat.
