This festival is not currently open for submissions.

Festival start: 20 October 2022      Festival end: 12 November 2022

The Zaragoza Film Festival, with a great track record behind it, decides through its Cultural Association, promoter of the FCZ event itself, to go one step further and create in 2018 a series of International Thematic Conferences, between the that there is a Social Theme, where it is intended through the audiovisual medium, that different social problems that surround us, can approach the public and therefore we become aware of the different realities.

The Other Looks section was born with the commitment to be a screen that makes visible different social realities; promoting values such as solidarity, tolerance and education, among others. Social diversity depends on three universal human realities: each individual is
unique, different and with common experiences. People are interrelated and
interdependent and societies and cultures are dynamic, changing and adapting to the
new situations.

Likewise, we support the different social groups, so that they can show their work
audiovisual and in this way their projects can be known by the general public.

In addition, we believe in cinema as an educational tool to make young people aware of the current social issues reflected in the works presented at the Festival.
