The Austral International Film Festival, based in the province of Córdoba, Argentina, is proposed as a space for reflection for sustainable, socially and economically conscious audiovisual production.

The jury of the international competition for audiovisual works (feature film, short film, minute video, children's video and music video; real action or animation with any technique) will award the prizes considered optimal by the team of judges for each competition. Under the jury's considerations, special mentions may be added.

As an entity, the FICA understands that the public is an essential element, so that through voting carried out after projections, the public will select the favorite works of each competition.
