BASES FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE CALL

Menorca Doc is a film and documentary photography festival that aims to show aspects of society that are not disseminated in cinemas, the media or the usual audiovisual distribution channels. The festival aims to raise public awareness through the documentary genre, understanding it as a tool to reflect on socio-political, environmental and human changes. In short, about our situation in the world.

Based on these interests, a series of annual calls are proposed in order to configure the official program for the V edition of the festival, which will be held between October 4 and November 1, 2024 in Menorca (Balearic Islands).
