The registered films must be their final version; Work-in-Progress projects will not be accepted. In cases where Spanish is not the original language of the film, a Spanish-subtitled version will need to be available before the festival. If no Spanish-subtitles are planned, please get in touch with the committee of the festival. The subtitles must be included in the file; otherwise the film will not be selected.

The person responsible for the registration of the work authorizes the Patagonia Eco Film Fest to screen the film during the festival, and allow the organization to use two minutes from the films as promotion for the festival in every way as they consider.

The person who signs the registration of the film must have the author`s rights or the corresponding authorization of it. This exempts the committee from any legal responsibility.
