Festival start: 18 October 2024      Festival end: 20 October 2024

PLUM! is an international animated film festival that aims to
disseminate and promote the art of animation in its diversity of techniques, voices and stories through the exhibition of works by local artists and from the rest of the world.

We wish to generate a platform for independent animation with an emphasis on
those works that expand the visual, conceptual and narrative limits of animated cinema and, at the same time, build a meeting point to promote creativity, exchange and collaboration between artists and the general public.
The two main competitions, one for animated shorts produced in
Latin America and those from the rest of the world will complement each other
with the other activities organized by the PLUM! festival: retrospectives, special programs, activities for children and adolescents, workshops related to the production of animated content, discussion panels, exhibitions and installations, creation of video games and special screenings with the CineMóvil in other parts of the Calchaquíes Valleys, among others. We seek to give the festival an eco-sustainable profile,
diverse and inclusive and generate a close bond of respect, work and cooperation with the different communities that make up the Tafí Valley.

By submitting a work to be considered in any of the competing categories, the applicant declares to be the owner of all copyrights on the Work and/or to have the power to authorize the public communication of the work during the festival period in Argentine territory. .

The signatory of the application also declares that in the event that their project compromises, affects or includes the total or partial use of works protected by national or international legislation on Intellectual Property, and whose copyright holders are persons other than the applicant for the project, has the express authorization of said work given by the copyright holder, complying with the formalities indicated in these bases. Authorization is understood as the permission granted by the copyright holder in any contractual form, to use the work in some of the ways and by some of the means that intellectual property legislation establishes.
