The jury's decision is final
The author of the script will always have the rights to it. The scripts presented, once the festival is over, will be deleted.
The transfer of data to the producers IBIZACINEFEST and EIVISSACINEMA is authorized by the mere fact of participating in the contest, in case they find any script that is of interest to produce and thus negotiate with the screenwriter this option.
Of all the scripts presented, the organization will select three finalists. These finalists will be invited to the festival, an invitation that includes airfare and hotel. The finalists must “pitch” their script before a court that will consist of jurors and a scriptwriter of recognized prestige.
The prize consists of an aid for the production of the award-winning short film valued at € 1,000 including taxes. In addition, the short film will participate in the contest in the next edition of the festival where its screenwriter and director will be invited to present it.
