4. In case of breach of authorship, the person responsible will be solely and exclusively the person who has submitted the short film, assuming, therefore, the consequences derived from any kind of claim or legal action. Consequently, the organisation is exempt from any conflict derived from the non-authorship of the works presented.

10. The theme of the work to be presented is free, as long as the subject matter is within the musical genre.

10.1 The organisation of the festival reserves the right to disregard those works that do not comply with the rules, do not present a minimum of quality (we will be rigorous with those that do not respect the format of sending the works or exceed the time established for the duration of the screenings).

10.2 subtitles.
If it is necessary to subtitle the film, the company providing the film must provide the appropriate material: reference link, DVD or Blu-Ray and list of dialogues and/or subtitles. The Festival will not return these materials, which will be destroyed at the end of the Festival. If the film is distributed in Spanish territory, the distribution company must provide the Festival with a copy of the OV screening with Spanish subtitles.
