The “Competitional” section is the section where all the productions selected by the festival jury will be showcased following the entries.
This is the most important section of the ABIFF 2021 festival.
Within this, the Grand Prize of 3.000 euro will be awarded.
After the viewing there will be Q&A sessions.
After each screening day, questions will be recorded from spectators in each city. The questions will be centralized and sent to the teams that participated in the making of the films presented / the jury / the festival team, etc.
They will send video recordings with their answers, resulting in a press conference video of the event. The video will be broadcast online on the festival website and other multimedia channels.
