* Works made by AND/OR about Latinos and native groups of the Americas are eligible to participate.
* Projects must have been completed after January 1, 2013.

Documentary short films of all forms will be considered. Preference is given to regional or national premieres, as well as to films that have not screened theatrically in Austin or on national television in the USA prior to the festival. A film selection committee will pre-screen all official entries prior to recommendation to the final programming committee. The film festival programming department reserves the right to determine the eligibility and final programming decision of any submission.

For all works where the spoken language is not English, English subtitles or narration are required.

Total running time of 49 minutes or less is considered a DOCUMENTARY SHORT.

The festival reserves the right to determine in which program section the selected films will screen, and to schedule selected films at the date, time and location of its choice.
