Glocal in Progress. Industry Award Rules
66th Edition - 2018

One. Purpose of the competition and sponsoring companies

The Glocal in Progress Industry Award has the aim of contributing to the completion of a European feature film produced in one of the non-hegemonic languages (all European languages except German, Spanish, French, English, Italian and Russian), selected for the San Sebastian Festival’s Glocal in Progress section.

The Industry Award is open to 100% European productions or to co-productions provided that European participation represents more than 51% of the total production of the film and that the stipulations indicated in section 4 of these terms & conditions are accepted.

Thus, the film winning the award will receive the different post-production, detailed below and provided by the sponsoring companies: Ad Hoc Studios, BTeam Pictures, Deluxe Spain, Dolby Iberia, Laserfilm, S.L., Nephilim producciones S.L. and No Problem Sonido.

Two. Participation requirements and conditions

Simply by presenting candidate projects to the Glocal in Progress Industry Award implies unlimited and unrestricted acceptance of these rules by the participating production companies.

Three. Film selection process and presenting the award

A Jury consisting of representatives from each of the companies sponsoring this section (as mentioned above) will select the winning film after having viewed the works that require the services they offer and examining their situation.

The decisions taken by the Jury will be final.

The winning film will be announced at the San Sebastian Festival.

Four. Co-production contract and participation quota

On behalf of the (aforementioned) sponsoring companies, NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L. will sign a financial co-production contract with the winning production company in order that the winning film may obtain Spanish nationality for the purposes of improved commercialisation in Spain. This contract, whose text will be worded by NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L., will be signed within a maximum of three months from the moment the Award is accepted by the winning production company and, in any case, before the post-production work begins.

Under the said contract, NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L. will become the audiovisual co-producer of the film and will therefore hold full rights to it. NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L. will also obtain 100% of the exclusive film rights in Spain and non-exclusive film rights in Andorra.

If the winning film were produced by a Spanish production company, NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES would obtain a percentage of the world rights of the film, including Spain. This percentage will be identical to the percentage represented by the contribution of the post-production companies with respect to the total cost of the film. The production company winning the award must communicate prior to signing the contract, the total production cost to date, including all costs except the cost of post-production (which will be the contribution of NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES) and the cost of advertising and copies, which will be decided at a later date.

The winning production company shall guarantee that it owns the licensing rights to the film and that it is authorised to sign this co-production contract with NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L. in the above terms. In the event that this guarantee fails to materialise, the production company will be held responsible for compensation to NEPHILIM PRODUCCIONES, S.L.

Five. Obligations of the winning production company

The winning production company undertakes to:

  • Provide all the material required to carry out the post-production work included in the award, no later than 15th December of the year that the award is granted;
