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.

This section of Festival de Málaga was born in 2008, this being its 17th edition. The project is conceived with a double purpose: to inform about the injustices that women still suffer in this century for the mere fact of being women, and to encourage and support the cinematographic work created by women.

FOUNDATIONS AFFIRMING WOMEN'S RIGHTS 2024

GENERAL RULES OF PARTICIPATION | 27TH MALAGA FESTIVAL

OBJECTIVES

Malaga Film Festival aims to disseminate and promote Spanish cinematography and its entire cultural field. In this sense, the Festival is also constituted as a platform for Ibero-American cinematography. Its functions include hosting the meeting of the various professional sectors of cinema in Spanish (understood as cinema produced in Spain and throughout the Ibero-American territory, including Portugal), promoting both its development and its international marketing.

For the fulfillment of these objectives, Festival de Málaga will celebrate its 27th Edition from March 1 to 10, 2024.

AFFIRMING WOMEN'S RIGHTS is a project that arises from the hand of Festival de Málaga, Mabel Lozano (documentalist and collaborator of the Festival), and the Area of Equal Opportunities of the City Council of Malaga as a tool of protest. This space is created in order to explore and discuss 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 17th edition. The project is conceived with a double purpose: to inform about the injustices that women still suffer in this century for the mere fact of being women, and to encourage and support the cinematographic work created by women.

In Affirming Women's Rights 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 of many women and girls. Where traditions and cultural patterns prevent the personal and social fulfillment in equal rights of girls and women with respect to their male counterparts, etc.

CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION

The works to compete 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, 2023, which have not been commercially exhibited in public rooms, video or television, in Spain.

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

Works that reflect the reality of women in situations where there are still obstacles to develop in conditions of equality with men will be valued; or situations of discrimination and vulnerability of human rights towards women and/or girls; innovative experiences of empowerment and fight against the social exclusion of women and girls, as well as works that promote and / or reflect progress in equal opportunities between men and women, that make visible the work and achievements of women in different areas that are not socially recognized or that make visible the contribution to the care of the environment that is being made from Ecofeminism; Work that reflects the contribution of men to the achievement of 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 done by women, since they are underrepresented in the film industry.
