The meeting gathers students from film schools all over the world to attend screenings of their previously selected shorts, discussions and master classes given by industry professionals. A competition between the short films presented at the meeting will also be called where a student jury, chaired by a prestigious filmmaker, will choose the winner of the Panavision Award and the Agencia Freak Award. The jury will similarly decide the names of the three directors given the opportunity to participate in the Short Film Corner at Cannes.
The International Film Students Meeting is jointly organised by the Festival and Tabakalera-International Centre for Contemporary Culture; it enjoys the backing of San Sebastian European Capital of Culture 2016 and the collaboration of Panavision and the Short Film Corner.
