Public to have a say in winners of international film festival in Guía de Isora
MiradasDoc is to celebrate its XII edition from January 26th to February 3rd.
The Documentary Film Festival and International Market of Guía de Isora offer films to the public and the industry which investigate the social reality of the planet at the borders of cinematographic language.
“This 12th edition moved its date to January/February to adapt to the international dynamics of exhibition, distribution and production, so that both the festival and the market are better situated for a new stage of its international projection,” a spokesman for the organisers explained.
MiradasDoc begins with the inaugural gala on Friday, January 26th, followed by eight more days of projections of several dozen films of reality, including those selected to participate in the competitions of the official section and those that are part of the informative samples.
The appointment of MiradasDoc Market with producers, distributors, televisions, buyers and all those involved in the film industry as an industry consists of a busy schedule of workshops, meetings, conferences, symposiums and forums, as well as the viewing of the documentaries between January 29th and 31st.
The official section of MiradasDoc includes three international sections – Feature Film, Short Film and First Work – as well as awarding a prize for the Best National Documentary and Best Canarian Documentary.
The public of the festival also becomes a jury for one of the most valued prizes, through voting after the exhibition of the films. All the screenings are given in the afternoon, starting at 4pm in two different rooms while the mornings are dedicated to the presentation of a documentary for educational purposes among schoolchildren and high school students from educational centres in Tenerife.
In the annual search to create its catalogue, MiradasDoc traces films around the world that show an original and sincere story of the social happening of the planet from the personal vision of the author.
The festival has been running in Guia de Isora since 2006 and has led to some huge successes in the film-making world.
