According to FAO predictions, the next few years are going to be a challenge for the world’s population and for the agriculure sector, since, if we do not increase food production by 70%, there will not be food for everyone. This has led us to create the Mesa Para 3 project, with the aim of raising awareness about this serious situation that the five continents are facing by the year 2050.
The audiovisual project is now available on YouTube, and it is a fictional short film starring the actors Paco Tous, Luis Zahera, Luis Mottola, Alexandra Masangkay, Nacho Guerreros, and Nerea Garmendia with which we intend to raise awareness about the food shortage that will affect to the whole planet, a topic that should not be alien to any of us.
The short film, which this one of the candidates for the Goya (the Academy Awards of Spain), the main national annual film awards, tells the story of five friends who book a table at an exclusive restaurant, but once upon arrival they discover that the establishment can only offer them a table for three, so two of them must stay without dinner. A situation that will test the friendship between them.
To this black comedy of entanglement comes a series of round tables with reference specialists in agriculture, climate change, and efficient use of resources, in which participate the COO of Stoller Group, Rodrigo Oliveira, the Vice President of EMEA subsidiaries of Stoller Group, Sergio Aguilar, and the General Director of Stoller Europe, Maurício Andrião, which you can already see at: www.cortomesapara3.es/en/
Until today, “Mesa para 3” accumulates more than 50 official selections at national and international festivals (USA, Italy, Argentina) where, in addition, it has already won six awards, such as Best Screenplay at Humans Fest 2022, Best Short Film at the Santaella ImagenArte Festival, Best Direction at Curts de Moscatell, Best Humor Short Film at the Calzada de Calatrava Festival, Audience Award at the Calahorra Festival or Best Comedy Award at the Calatrava Festival Astorga Cinema.
