The Menorca International Film Festival will celebrate its sixth edition in July 2021, and so it has already opened its call for entries for the festival’s Official Section.
The short films to participate in the two competitive sections, “Balears en Curt” and “Illes en Curt” may be submitted until April 18th2021 through the Filmfreeway online platform, where the entry regulations are already available. And so FICME kicks off the reception of film candidates to be screened during the festival and eligible for the best short film award.
FICME’s sixth edition will also have a call for entries and regulations for the “Talent Jove” section for young filmmakers, who will be able to submit their works until May 31st.
In its sixth edition, FICME will feature several programming developments. On the one hand, it will reaffirm its commitment to showing content with a strong social and sustainable development aspect, in line with its commitment to sustainability on the island. In this sense, various actions around that topic will be promoted during the duration of the festival.
On the other hand, there will be changes made to both the format and the programming of the festival in order to take a further step towards getting consolidated as one of the benchmark short film festivals in the Balearic Islands and in Spain. The commitment to short films will be very clear, and as with every edition, some of the most celebrated shorts of the year will be offered. In addition, a program proposal linked to the most outstanding awards in the film industry is already in the works.
After breaking the festival’s Official Section participation records in its fifth edition, the sixth installment of the FICME is quite a challenge. The short film competition will, like every year, have a section for short films from the Balearic Islands, “Balears en Curt”, and a section for national and international works, “Illes en Curt”.
The winners of the official section will receive a cash prize of 700 euros and their short will be pre-selected to be considered for the Badalona Filmets Festival program. In addition, the short films will participate in different promotional actions supported by the festival. The best short film from the Talent Jove section will be selected by a professional jury and will receive a cash prize of 500 euros.
All the information regarding the call for entries, the regulations for the Official Section and the official selection for FICME 2021 can be found on the festival’s website www.festivalmenorca.com.
