The Association FICBUEU opens the registration period to send short films for the 12º edition of the International Short Film Festival of Bueu (Pontevedra), that will take place from 6th to 14th September supported by the Town Council of Bueu, among others. The rules of the festival anticipate eight sections this year, one of them reserved to experimental short films.
The deadline will be open until the 15th April and the films should be sent using the platform Shortfilmdepot. The films must have been released after 1st January and have a duration of less than 30 minutes, all genres accepted. The selected films will be announced in June and will have the opportunity to win more than 5.000 euros in prizes, taking into consideration those addressed to schools, which will participate in an specific call.
All the submitted short films will compete to enter the International Section and be eligible for the Golden Amphora and Silver Amphora, in addition to eleven artistic and technical awards. Once this section is completed, the remaining sections will be configured, those selected for the Galician Section and Spanish Section will be able to win the awards for Best Galician Short Film and Best Spanish Short Film respectively. Apart from the Galician Schools Section there will also be at least four more non-competitive sections: Children, Juniors, Panorama and Experimental– this year’s innovation.
The main goal of the International Short Film Festival of Bueu is to collaborate to the promotion of the best international short films of the last two years. However, the organisation team is working to create a wider programme that will include diverse cinematographic and cultural activities. All these without forgetting the different workshops and actions of the Social Area of FICBUEU, which is already working with multiple collectives.
