All films in all different sections of the Biennal will be exhibited in their original versions. Films which original language is different from Spanish must include subtitles in this language as well as English. In case one of the two subtitles is not available in the video, we kindly request a dialogue list (Word) or .srt file of the subtitles of the not embedded dialogues.
7. PROGRAMME AND EXHIBITION RIGHTS
During the celebration of the Biennal, the organisation reserves the right to exhibit the selected movies in as many sessions as it deems convenient. For that respect, producers and/or right-holders will cede the right for public exhibition of their movies during the entire celebration of the Biennal with no additional charges. This includes Exhibitions and Screenings that the festival organises throughout the year.
For the simple fact of participating, the right-holders authorise the free reproduction of images of the work (max. 1 minute) for press, TV and promotional purposes.
A jury, formed by specialists in different areas of the film industry, will award Special Mentions for each one of the sections, which will be announced during the Closing Ceremony of the Biennal.
Jury decision is final.
