Call for Entries

Esto Es Para Esto is a cinema collective group dedicated to independent cinema screening, spreading and film discussion, based in Monterrey City, México.

We seek for different forms of cinema, transcending media’s conventions and traditions that challenge the established. Cinematographic mirages, audiovisual delirium, dreams in motion, video-mutations, images and sound that travel through blood and brain cells to the screen, without format, duration or genre prejudices at all. We want to share your delirious audiovisions, pour them into the receptacle of light and discuss what might detonate in the minds of those who observe and listen.


The official selection will be programmed by Esto Es Para Esto’s team in our festival EIC 2023 special screenings, online screenings and/or in one or more later screenings, during Esto Es Para Esto’s - Exhibition of Cine screening activities.

Exact date will be confirmed and the Official Selection will be published in our social media.


1. Genre, length, theme and format are your decision.

2. Spanish and/or English subtitles are required in case the film’s language is none of both languages.

3. Basic information about the film: Stills, Poster, Synopsis, Filmmaker’s photo and General information about the film (Director, Length, Year of release, Country)

4. When submitted, the filmmaker(s) declares themselves as the rightful owner(s) of their film.

5. EEPE will use stills, pictures and fragments of selected films for screening promotion purposes, publicity and promotion of future screenings and events indefinitely by any possible medium.

6. You give us your consent and accept that EEPE and their employees and/or agents have the right to screen your film and use it in every media in our possibilities exclusively for the purpose of screening and promoting independent film screening cycles programmed by EEPE.

7. You give us your consent to display your name and identity in a programme text for the screening and/or mentions in social media to exhibit this work in press and electronic media, public or private.

8. EEPE doesn’t pay in any monetary form for any screening, selected or posterior.

9. You declare that you have at least 18 years old, you’ve read and understood the previous statement and are competent to execute this agreement.

10. Screening dates, form and venue (if there were a physical one) are subject to changes and will be organized in cycles for their screening throughout 2023.

11. If your film is selected, you’ll be asked to provide to us a digital copy within a 30 days time frame.

12. The EEPE Committee will decide the calendarization of the screening programmes and the category/section for each project and every screening programme names.

13. EEPE does not cover any expenses.

14. One of our most important goals is to create a film archive with the screenings as a documentation of the curation and screening labor, plus the historic value that this means, looking forward to re-screen programmes and films in further venues. If you don’t want your film to be part of the Esto Es Para Esto’s Film Archive or if you want more information about it, please approach us when you submit your film.

15. As EEPE, we make constant Local screenings (From Monterrey city's filmmakers). This is independent from any EIC's screenings or international programmes you might be part of.
