The International Film Festival "Piriápolis de Película" is an event that has consolidated itself as an essential space for the meeting of the independent production of national and international filmmakers. It is characterized by exhibiting, completely free of charge, a selection of outstanding audiovisual productions, short, medium and feature films of all genres. It also has an Iberoamerican Short Film Contest, whose objective is to stimulate and disseminate the production of short films in the region and the continent, adorned by an outstanding international jury.

Jury Special Mentions


1.- The 21st Piriápolis de Película International Film Festival calls for entries to the Ibero-American Short Film Competition, with the aim of stimulating and disseminating the production of short films from the region and the continent. Also to feature films that want to be part of the Iberoamerican Showcase of the Festival.

2.- The Ibero-American Competition is open to short films produced and directed in Ibero-American countries, or Spanish or Portuguese speaking countries, even if they are produced in other countries outside the region. The same criteria applies for the Ibero-American Feature Film Showcase.

3.- They must have been made after January 1st, 2022 and in the following categories: fiction, documentary and animation. The maximum length accepted per film will be 15 minutes for short films and 100 minutes for feature films. Films may not have been screened in previous editions of the festival and priority will be given to those that are national or regional premieres.

4.- The films may have been produced in any film or digital format, but must be submitted for exhibition in the following formats: H264-stereo-1920x1080 or similar (MOV, MKV, MP4, AVI).

5.- In the case of films that are not originally in Spanish, they must come with embedded subtitles in Spanish or be sent with an SRT file with Spanish subtitles and time codes (EXCLUDING REQUIREMENT).

6.- The deadline for the reception of materials is September 6th, 2024.

7.- An international jury of three members will discern the awards in the short films category and its decision will be final. There will also be a student jury that will issue its verdict.

8.- The festival will try to provide facilities for the presence of the filmmakers of the selected films during the festival, but their acceptance does not imply the granting of an invitation with airfare and lodging, which must be paid by the participant.

9.- The registration of the film in the festival implies the tacit acceptance of these rules. Any unforeseen event not established in these Rules and Regulations, or arising during the Festival, will be interpreted and resolved solely and exclusively by the Organizing Committee, and will not give rise to any subsequent claim.
