Go To
En Busca de la Beca is a student Short Film produced and submitted for TecMilenio's La Noche Del Halcón festival. It's based on the book series Super Filete, not relating to the actual canon. It features music by Anamanaguchi and Project RnL.

The story has Filete and Cookie trying to find out who took away "La Beca".

You can watch it here.

Tropes include:

  • Adaptation Distillation: The introduction narrows down the plot of the first book to Filete acquiring powers by eating a steak (in a food stand originally, but in the school cafeteria in the short), and then her and Cookie(who already has metal manipulation powers) becoming best friends.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Super Filete's portal gun was changed into a Scissor Blade, but her Infinite Hoodie where she gets it still stands. Other powers she's had in the books are not shown.
  • Adapted Out: Every other character from the book who isn't Filete or Cookie.
  • Alternate Continuity: One where Filete and Cookie have always lived in our Earth,apparently.
  • BFS: Super Filete is seen welding the Scissor Blade.
