Authors (film makers)
There are thousands of international film festivals. How can you
know which ones will treat you and your films fairly?
If you take part in a festival under UNICA Patronage, you can be
sure of a fair deal. If your film wins the festival's UNICA Medal
you get extra publicity on the UNICA website.
- usually sends a representative to the event
- checks that the competition is open to all nationalities
- insists that the festival is fair to all nationalities
- requires that films are not copied, televised or exploited
by the festival
- receives and records a list of
jurors, films and awards
- provides a medal for the best film to promote solidarity
between nations / or uses new forms of expression
- obliges all approved festivals
to state on forms and publicity "under the patronage of UNICA"
