Audience Award for Best "Emergencia" Youth Film
Sponsor:No Sponsor

Category Rules

This section is for YOUTH films ONLY (where primary creative team is 19 years of age or younger).

As a celebration of young filmmakers, Cine Las Americas presents "Emergencia," a special competitive section open to filmmakers ages 19 and under.

General guidelines by which the festival determines eligibility:
* Contemporary films from North, Central, South America, the Caribbean and the Iberian Peninsula are eligible to participate.
* 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.

Feature length and short films of all forms will be considered including dramatic, documentary, experimental, animation, and music videos. For youth films, music that is not original to the production, but follows all copyright and intellectual property rights laws, may be used in conjunction with an original video production.

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 and/or narration are required.

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.
