THE THEME OF THE FESTIVAL IS: THE TRUE PURPOSE OF HUMAN LIFE.

This international festival of film projects for artists from all areas, aims to stimulate the creation of short films, in which artists from any medium (musicians, dancers, actors and actresses, writers, painters, sculptors, etc.) can participate. We are interested in proposals which inspire and excite us, whilst exploring the true purpose of human existence. We are looking for strong visual concepts and ideas, not necessarily a high quality of techincal filmmaking. Submissions shot on phones, for example, are very welcome.

The selection and award criteria will be based on the potential value of the film proposal and not on the technical quality of the submission.

The jury will be made up of artists and technicians from different areas, not only from the audiovisual area.

The 3 winners will receive a final digital version in "ProRes", after finishing the production of their Short Films, to facilitate their application to various film festivals, such as the Berlinale, where this type of format is necessary.


The selection and award criteria will be based on the potential value of
the film proposal and not on the technical quality of the submission.
