CALL FOR ENTRIES: Barcelona International Television Festival 2009



We invite directors of all ages to submit your children and youth productions and participate in the 13th edition of the Barcelona International Television Festival (FITB) to be held November 10- 12, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 13 p.m. and from 15p.m. to 18p.m., with the closing ceremony the 13th.

As always we are interested in documentaries, animations, TV programmes and series from around the World that form, entertain and educate. There is no entry fee and we offer the prestigious UNICEF PRIZE and CREATIVE PRIZE. Screenings incluye productions the Audiovisual Service of the Department of Education of the Autonomous Government of Catalonia and the SHOWCASE OF NEWS BULLETINS, COMMERCIALS AND FICTION VIDEOS from the Blanquerna School, Ramón LLull University.

This is a good opportunity for filmmakers and production companies to showcase their work in Spain and share it with enthusiastic young audiences along with media professionals. Every year we collaborate with educators so that groups of school children get to see a wide range of international films that are 60 minutes or less, that they may not otherwise be able to access. We request that films that are not in Spanish be subtitled in Spanish or English.
