IMDb Film Festival.

Last year we received projects with big stars like Jeremy Irons or Franco Nero, positioning the Costa Brava Film festival as one of the most important newly created festivals. More than 2,400 filmmakers from 76 countries have already trusted the Costa Brava Film Festival.

We want to help you and all the works registered in the Category: "All categories" will be promoted on our social networks. It does not matter if you are not selected, we will announce your work. All projects registered in the All categories have a promotional post on our Instagram.

All winners of the main category will have:
-Laurels of the winners personalized with the frames of your project so that you can use it as promotional material.
-Feedback with the audience: Our live events have a voting system by the spectators. We will send you all the scores and comments.
-Distribution plan. We will send the best works to the film and television distributors with whom we collaborate. We have more than 8,000 international buyers.
-Your work on our social networks.

None of the works will be screened online. We are against online screenings and your work can only be viewed at our live event.
We do not have a production year limit. We accept projects of all years. Because we all deserve a second chance!

One of the charms of the city of Girona is that you can visit the locations of Game of Thrones from the sixth season.
