Regulations and conditions

 

The International Guía de Isora Documentary Film Festival, MiradasDoc, has among its main objectives the dissemination and promotion of documentaries on social subjects – in the widest sense of the term – produced anywhere in the world, with the idea that there is a direct way of understanding, observing and making visible the social processes which take place in human society in general nowadays.

Being conscious of the growth in importance of the documentary genre in this country, the Festival Organising Committee has decided that it is necessary to include a competition section devoted to promoting Spanish documentaries.

In the same way, the interests of MiradasDoc include the documentary on a freely-chosen subject produced in the Canary Islands, with the aim of contributing to the development of the documentary in our islands.

In this way, three different areas are established in the official competition section of MiradasDoc: the international prize, the national prize and the Canarian prize. In turn, the international prize is divided into prizes for a full-length film, a short film and a first work.

In the same way, MiradasDoc brings together other events related with documentaries:

MiradasDoc Market has as its objective the distribution, sale, development and funding of documentary films on social subjects from anywhere in the world, and for this purpose it organises pitching sessions, a screening and professional sessions of lectures, talks and workshops. Furthermore, MiradasDoc Market includes among its objectives the development of the documentary panorama of the Canary Islands and so it makes it possible for Canarian producers to participate in this market by means of the creation of a Canarian VIP Pass.

Another very important aspect of the objectives of MiradasDoc is training. The training of professionals in the audiovisual sphere is one of the keys to the development of an audiovisual industry in many territories which unfortunately do not have either the learning infrastructure or the necessary infrastructure for specialist and competitive training. For this reason, MiradasDoc holds the International Documentary Workshops. In the same way, the creation and training of audiences for this kind of cinema is one of the key parts in the work of MiradasDoc and the reason for which each year a docu-forum known as “Con Otros Ojos” (with other eyes) is held for secondary pupils.
