Each author and/or group may submit more than one paper.

The owners of the short films presented will be responsible for all the rights related to the works. This festival trusts that they will take responsibility that they are not subject to any legal claim and will decline any legal responsibility regarding the short films and their owners and/or producers. In case of legal claim, this committee reserves the right to claim the return of the prizes (both physical and monetary) which will be effectively carried out by the winners.

The shipping costs, if any, will be paid by the participants.

Before participating in the competition, each participant must read and accept in full the rules and the principle of the competition. Any person who violates any of the rules will no longer be able to participate in the competition and will not be entitled to the prize they would otherwise have won.


The theme of the short films will be free, of any secondary genre, although humour/comedy must prevail (character of this festival), and any technique used (real image, animation, computer graphics...). For the time being, documentary short films will not be admitted.
