SELECTION

An international programmer, member of the European Film Academy, together with the festival's organizing team, will be in charge of selecting, among all the works received, those that will participate in the official competitive section of the festival.

The complete list of selected works, as well as their nominations, will be published for the information of all participants, both on the festival's website and Facebook profile and through the Festhome platform.

The festival organizers will contact the selected films to inform them of the technical requirements and to send the screening copies. This contact will only be made individually to the email address indicated on the registration form (details of the presenter of the film).

In order to facilitate the presence of the director and companion of each of the selected films at the closing gala, the festival will cover the costs of accommodation in a double room and a 4-star hotel, according to the following criteria: 2 nights for international films and 1 night for national films. The invitation includes accommodation with breakfast in a double room, not including additional meals or other services.

The invitation ONLY grants accreditation for 2 representatives of each selected paper, including access to the closing ceremony and the cocktail party after it.

In the case of works with several nominations, the festival will study the possibility of granting more accreditations depending on availability, with a limit of 4 accreditations per selected work, starting from 2 and independently of the total number of nominations received.

Travel will not be covered by the festival, however, a pick-up and drop-off service will be provided to the hotel on the day of arrival, as well as on the day of the march. All other travel will be at the guests' own expense, unless otherwise indicated by the festival organizers.

The festival will issue selection and nomination certificates, as well as official invitations for those foreign guests who require such documentation for the issuing of travel visas.

The presence of a representative of each selected work will be required at the closing gala. Awards not withdrawn will remain in the possession of the organization. Awards will not be duplicated or sent, nor will it be possible to claim them at a later date.

It will be the responsibility of the guests to inform themselves about the requirements imposed by the health authorities at all times.
