Don't miss out on submitting your film to the 62nd edition of Zinebi International Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Bilbao!
Born in 1959, the International Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Bilbao (ZINEBI) has gained its own place as one of the top international festivals, the programming of which (documentary, animation and fiction) is the main symbol of its identity. Meticulous and thorough international competition sections, extremely free and committed cinema that is a real novelty for the audience and helps to build critical thought in the midst of the cultural complexity of contemporary artistic expression.
Zinebi's program finds room for all kinds of stylistic formats, the most creative, innovative and suggestive audiovisual formats, and emerging directors of contemporary films from all around the world, so that each new festival renews its commitment to exploring new film territories, formal experimentation, the hybrid and interdisciplinary condition of new cinematographic productions and film-makers’ ethical and aesthetic investigation into the complex realities of the world in which we live.
Among the festival guests, international judges or awarded authors, great names can be found, such as Roman Polanski, Marco Bellocchio, Jean Rouch, Basilio M. Patino, Julio Medem or Carlos Saura.
OSCAR®, BAFTA AND GOYA AWARDS QUALIFYING FESTIVAL: Zinebi has been accredited by the Hollywood Academy as a qualifier for the Oscars® and is a qualifier for the BAFTAs awarded by the British cinema industry and for the Spanish Goyas.
