ASSERTING WOMEN'S RIGHTS is a project that has emerged from Festival de Málaga, Mabel Lozano (documentary filmmaker and collaborator of the Festival), and the Equal Opportunities Area of Malaga City Council as a protest tool. This section is created with the aim of exploring and dealing with issues that contribute to social awareness of women's rights each year.

GENERAL BASES OF PARTICIPATION | 26 MALAGA FESTIVAL

OBJECTIVES

The Malaga Festival aims to disseminate and promote Spanish cinematography and its entire cultural sphere. In this sense, the Festival is also constituted as a platform for Ibero-American cinematographies. Among its functions, it stands out that of hosting the meeting of the various professional sectors of cinema in Spanish (understood as such the cinema produced in Spain and throughout the Ibero-American territory, including Portugal), promoting both its development and its international marketing.

In order to fulfill these objectives, the Malaga Festival will hold its 26th Edition from March 10 to 19, 2023.

AFFIRMING THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN is a project that arises from the hand of the Malaga Festival, Mabel Lozano (documentary filmmaker and Festival collaborator), and the Area of ​​Equal Opportunities of the Malaga City Council as a protest tool. This space is created with the aim of exploring and treating each year issues that contribute to social awareness of women's rights.

This section of the Malaga Festival was born in 2008, this being its 16th edition. The project is conceived with a dual purpose: to report on the injustices that women continue to suffer in this century for the mere fact of being women, and to promote and support the cinematographic work created by women.
In Affirming the Rights of Women we have been able to make visible the realities of women in different countries of the world and see how, even today, there are many places where the struggle for life is a daily goal for many women and girls. Where cultural traditions and guidelines impede personal and social fulfillment with equal rights for girls and women with respect to their male counterparts, etc.
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION

The works in competition within the section Affirming the Rights of Women must meet the following requirements:

Works produced in Spain and throughout the Ibero-American territory after January 1, 2022, that have not been commercially exhibited in public theaters, DVD, video or television, in Spain.

Short films with a maximum duration of 30 minutes, medium-length films and feature films with a minimum of 50 minutes may participate.

Jobs that reflect the reality of women in situations where there are still obstacles to developing in conditions of equality with respect to men. Audiovisuals that reflect situations of discrimination and vulnerability of human rights towards women and/or girls will be especially valued. Works related to innovative experiences of empowerment and fight against the social exclusion of women and girls will also be valued, as well as works that promote and/or reflect progress in equal opportunities between men and women.

Audiovisual works that make visible the work and achievements of women in different fields that are not socially recognized.

Audiovisual works that make visible the contribution to caring for the environment that is being made from Ecofeminism will be especially valued.

Works that reflect the contribution of men to achieving gender equality, co-responsibility and the reconciliation of personal, work, family life, etc. will also be valued.

It will be valued that in these works, the direction, script and/or production of the audiovisual work has been carried out by women, since they are underrepresented in the film industry.
