Eligibility:

BSF 2020 will screen in Barcelona in October 2020. All of the films will have English Subtitles. 

BSF is an international, juried short film festival based in Barcelona, Spain. BSF screens outstanding short film, animation, docs, experimental and video art. We understand that some short film and video blur the lines of typical film festival categories, so we also enthusiastically encourage non-traditional and experimental formats. 

The stories of and by women, girls and non-binary people are underrepresented in film festivals, so we want to encourage submissions from anyone self-identifying as a woman, non-binary and/or anyone telling stories about women, girls and non-binary people.

An international jury will select the winning categories including, Best International Short Film or Video 2020, which will receive 1000€. 

You can view the trailers for the 2019 selection and winners on our Vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/showcase/6036175

BSF is run by Assoicació Techne Barcelona, a non-profit organization for the promotion and showcasing of art. Associació Techne Barcelona supports a culture of equality, diversity and non-discrimination.

CATALÀ: 
El BSF és un festival internacional de curtmetratges amb seu a Barcelona que projecta destacats curtmetratges, animacions, documentals i video art. Som conscients que alguns curtmetratges i documentals transgredeixen les divisions dels festivals de cinema tradicionals, i per tant també ens encantarà rebre propostes en formats experimentals i no tradicionals.

Els films fets per i sobre dones, nenes i persones no binàries tenen poca visibilitat en els festivals de cinema. És per això que volem animar a qualsevol que s'identifiqui com a dona o persona no binària a que expliqui històries sobre dones, nenes i persones no binàries.

Un jurat internacional de cineastes i vídeo-artistes seleccionarà els curtmetratges guanyadors, entre ells el de Millor Curtmetratge Internacional, que rebrà 1000 €.

El BSF està organitzat per l'Associació Techne Barcelona, que no té ànim de lucre i promou una cultura d'igualtat, diversitat i no discriminació
