Here are the award-winning productions:

Category: Long-term short film (fiction)

Synopsis: This short film tells the story of Marcos Zeday, an announcer who receives an anonymous call that threatens his reputation on a live radio show.
On the other hand, the film Sk8, directed by Josie Abreu, was nominated in the Short Documentary category.
These achievements make ECFR proud:
“We congratulate Sagrado students Yanmarie Soan Santiago and Yandel Irizarry, as well as their mentors, professors María Malaret, from the Advanced Production course, and Teresa Previdi, from the Documentary Production course, for these extraordinary achievements for our university,” said Gabriel Paizy, Dean of the ECFR, to inSagrado.
