The Hispasat 4K Festival and RTVE make new 4K content available to the public through the Botón rojo (red button) application.
Four winning short films from the 2016 edition of the Hispasat 4K International Short Film Festival can be seen in UHD through RTVE’s Botón rojo application. To view them, viewers need to click on the 4K Content option of the application.
This new content in UHD can be seen along with the series of 4K Directors interviews, an innovative television programme produced entirely in UHD by Virtual Contenidos, in which some of the winners of previous edition of the Hispasat 4K Short Film Festival discuss the current and future state of audiovisual media with renown directors, paying specific attention to new formats, such as 4K.
Participating in the four episodes are: Gracia Querejeta with Iván Fernández de Córdoba, Daniel Sánchez Arévalo with Rodrigo Atiénzar, Nacho Vilgalondo with Haritz Zubillaga, and Emilio Martínez Lázaro with Aitor Gutiérrez.
These contents will also be available shortly on the Hispasat 4K channel, which is broadcast free-to-air via the Hispasat 30W-5 satellite.
The third edition of the event is now under way. To participate in the third edition of the festival, all short films must be submitted by 14 June. The festival is open to films shot and post-produced in 4K that were produced after 1 January 2015, in any country and in any genre, and which have a maximum duration of 25 minutes.
