16th MOSTRA INTERNACIONAL DE CINEMA ETNOGRÁFICO – ETHNOGRAPHIC FILM FESTIVAL – MUSEO DO POBO GALEGO
To be eligible for this Festival, the submitted films must have been produced after 1st January 2018.
The 16th Mostra de Cinema Etnográfico Museo do Pobo Galego will run March 23-28 2021, in Santiago de Compostela. We understand ethnographic cinema in a broad sense; it refers to those productions whose main aim is to show different aspects related to sociocultural realities as well as a community’s way of life. It comprises films with the main focus on people, social groups and relevant historical processes that are related to anthropology and ethnography.The criteria will take into account the relevance of the social questions addressed, the technical quality and the aesthetic sense, the innovation in both its subject matter and its presentation, as well as its scientific relevance.
Films must be submitted one of the submission platforms Clickforfestivals,
Festhome and Filmfreeway. The deadline for film submissions is January 8, 2021 at 23h59.
The selection of the documentaries for the Official Selection is the responsibility of the Festival. Once the selection process is completed, the organisation will notify their decision to the provided contact(s). Films screening schedule will be decided by the organisation. Once the film is included in the festival catalogue, its unilateral withdrawal will not be permitted.
A screening copy –preferably high definition digital copy– of the selected film must be sent. The Festival will not accept copies that do not meet the minimum conditions of screening. Screening copies should be received no later than 10th March 2021.
Original works submitted for screening must be exactly the same as the copy originally sent for selection. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in the submission being disqualified.
The subtitle for the screening in the competition section should preferably be in Galician or Spanish and will try, as far as possible, to provide accessibility criteria for deaf people.
The selected films will become part of the Festival archive, and their use is therefore authorised for research and educational purposes. The submission of a film to the festival implies the acceptance of these rules and regulations.
