As one of Europe's oldest festivals, Valladolid has always been characterised by its willingness to take risks and to innovate in its programming. It has also been keen to critically examine each new school or movement as it has arisen, whether it be German, Polish, Chinese, Canadian, or else. With a genuine concern for the art of cinema, for film-making and filmmakers rather than the more obvious commercial or glamorous aspects of the industry, the festival has built up an identity of its own - equally attractive to film enthusiasts, professionals and the media. An International Jury decides the winners of numerous prizes. The festival grants cash awards for feature length and short films with a total value of 93 000 € in the different categories.

For more information on eligibility and procedures, please consult the entry form and regulations of the festival.
