The International Film Festival "Piriápolis de Película" is an event that has consolidated itself as an essential space for the meeting of the independent production of national and international filmmakers. It is characterized by exhibiting, completely free of charge, a selection of outstanding audiovisual productions, short, medium and feature films of all genres. It also has an Iberoamerican Short Film Contest, whose objective is to stimulate and disseminate the production of short films in the region and the continent, adorned by an outstanding international jury.

Jury Special Mentions


1.- The 20th Piriápolis International Film Festival, to be held on October 20th, 21st and 22nd, 2023, calls for the Ibero-American Short Film Competition, with the objective of stimulating and disseminating the production of short films from the region and the continent.

2.- For the Iberoamerican Competition, short films produced and made in Latin American countries, or Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, can participate, even if they have production from other countries outside the continent, but the origin of the project and its realization must be in a Latin American country, or Spain and Portugal.

3.- They must have been made as of January 1st, 2021 and in the following categories: Fiction, Documentary and Animation. The maximum length accepted per film will be 15 minutes. The short films may not have been exhibited in previous editions of the festival and priority will be given to those that are national or regional premieres.

4.- The productions may have been produced in any film or digital format, but must be presented for exhibition in the following formats: H264-stereo-1920x1080 or similar (MOV, MKV, MP4, AVI).

5.- In the case of films that are not originally in Spanish, they must come with Spanish subtitles embedded in them or be sent with an SRT file with Spanish subtitles and time codes (ESSENTIAL CONDITION).

6.- The deadline for the reception of materials is September15th, 2023.

7.- An international jury of three members will discern the awards in the different categories and their decision will be final. There will also be a cinema students jury that will issue its verdict, and the Audience Choice Awards.

8.- The festival will try to provide facilities for the presence of the filmmakers of the selected short films during the festival, but the acceptance of the short film does not imply the granting of an invitation with ticket and accommodation, which must be paid for by the participant.

9.- The submission of the short film in the festival implies the tacit acceptance of these rules. Any unforeseen circumstance not established in these Forms and Regulations, or that arises during the Festival, will be interpreted and resolved solely and exclusively by the Organizing Committee, and will not give rise to any kind of subsequent claim.
