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 production companies IBIZACINEFEST and EIVISSACINEMA is authorized by the mere fact of participating in the contest, in case they find a script that is of interest to produce and thus negotiate this option with the scriptwriter.


From all the scripts presented, the organization will select 12 finalists. These finalists will send a recorded pitch of no more than 5 minutes in length.
The Ibizacinefest Jury will decide in an unappealable way the winner.

The award consists of an aid for the production of the awarded short film valued at € 1,000, taxes included. In addition, the short film will participate in a competition in the next edition of the festival where its screenwriter and director will be invited to present it.
2 Special Mentions will be awarded, ensuring the producer of the finished short film, the official selection of him in the corresponding edition of the Ibizacinefest.
All finalist scripts will have a fee waiver for their registration in the Ibizacinefest following the completion of the short film.
In any of the above possibilities, the producer of the short film agrees to include the corresponding Ibizacinefest logo at the beginning of the film.
