A FESTIVAL IN WHICH EVERYONE CAN PARTICIPATE
The festival is divided into two sections in order to facilitate the participation of any person or group that wishes to make a contribution: a General Section with categories for filmmakers and amateurs, and a special Section for Educational Institutions.
The festival serves to bring together the work of professionals and amateurs, recognising not only the quality of the images but also the example of overcoming violence and discrimination, opening new paths with non-violence.
A. Feature Films. From 60 min.
B. Medium-length films. From 31 to 59 min.
C. Short films. Up to 30 min.
RULES FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE GENERAL SECTION
We focus on the transformative power of the message conveyed in each film, rather than on artistic quality, when awarding the festival’s prizes. We therefore invite no one to self-censure their production for the means by which it was made, but to note whether they really share a transformative nonviolent action.
Nonviolence advances towards its maximum dimension by ensuring that nothing is above the human being and no human being is above another.
EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS SECTION
D. Short films. Up to 30 min.
RULES FOR PARTICIPATION IN EDUCATION CENTRES
There are no age barriers to participation. We encourage the creation of the youngest with the help of schools, for which we dedicate a special section to collect works that come out of the classroom. In this sense, we call on the responsibility of teachers to consider whether or not it is necessary to advance in education in active non-violence.
Helping to find horizontality in the classroom will be a task for teachers, but also a challenge for students.
