Call for entries – 16th Bueu International Film FestivalFICBUEU
Deadline is on April 15th at 2:00 p.m. and the selected works will be screened at FICBUEU 2023 from September 9th to 23th
The FICBUEU opens the period for the presentation of works to the 16th edition of the Bueu International Film Festival (Pontevedra), which will take place between September 9th and 23rd. The bases, available on the website of the contest, contemplate up to five competitive sections (without taking into account the future call for the Galician Schools Section) following the pattern of the previous edition of the contest, which ended another year with great public success.
The deadline for sending short films will remain open until April 15th, which one more year must be done through the Shortfilmdepot platform with a registration fee of 2€. Works of any genre released from January 1st, 2022 may be submitted, with a duration that does not exceed 30 minutes. In June, the selected works will be announced, which will compete for more than 5,500 euros in prizes, also taking into account those destined for Galician Schools, for which a specific call will be launched, foreseeably in the month of May.
All the works presented will compete to enter the sections: Official, Spain, Galicia, Discoveries and International Schools, making up a large part of the screening program and the list of winners of FICBUEU 2023. In parallel there will also be five other non-competitive sections: Retrospective, Family Short Films, Kindergarten, Children, Junior. Furthermore, attendees will vote in situ for the acclaimed Audience Award.
The objective of the Bueu International Film Festival is to contribute to the dissemination of cinema, not only by promoting the best short films made in the last year internationally, but also by offering activities related to cinema beyond the event.
The organization is currently working on the configuration of a program that continues along the lines established last year and that will include multiple activities of a cinematographic and cultural nature. To this are added different events and the actions from FICBUEU’s Social Area, which will begin shortly with different collectives.
