Media Coverage extensive daily coverage in all of the national and local press; press conferences are regularly broadcast on TV; the closing night ceremony is broadcast nationally by Spain's leading TV-channel; strong presence in the European trade magazines

Specific Characteristics The jury nominates a short film from the international competition for the European Film Awards.

Evaluation A popular festival, well regarded for its pleasant atmosphere. An increasing number of independent producers and directors make important contacts here. A convivial meeting point for Spanish and Latin American distributors in the field of "author films". Some distributors plan their theatrical release until after the festival in order to use the excellent press coverage. Concentrating on Latin American and Spanish films the festival has become one of the most important events of Spain, after San Sebastián.
