A total of 42 projects out of 359 applicants have been awarded grants according to the Spanish government on Wednesday, September 7.

Of the 42 projects that have been awarded grants, 27 fall into the category of special cinematographic, cultural or social value.

6 projects fall into the animation category and 9 projects into the documentary category.
