The Board of Directors chooses and invites the films which will be presented in Competition. Each film invited to be part of the Official Selection by the Board of Directors will receive a Certificate of Participation. Once a film has been selected it cannot be withdrawn from the Festival program during the event. All films must be presented in their original language, with English subtitles. By "original language" is meant the language in which a film is or will be exhibited in its country of origin.
The Board of Directors designates the eight foreign and British members of the Jury for the competition as well as its President. No person having taken part in the production or exploitation of a film in competition may be on the Jury.
