The meeting gathers students from film schools all over the world to attend screenings of their previously selected short films, discussions and master classes given by industry professionals.
The selected short films will be screened at showings open to the general public and a competition between the short films presented at the meeting will also be called. Here, a student jury, chaired by a prestigious filmmaker, will choose the winner of the Panavision Award. Moreover, a specific jury formed by students from Basque schools, coordinated by a teacher from the University of Mondragon and chaired by the Development Management Department of Orona Fundazioa, will give the Orona Award to the most cutting-edge short film in the Meeting.
The International Film Students Meeting is jointly organized 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 Orona Fundazioa.
