Zabaltegi-Tabakalera is San Sebastian Festival’s all-encompassing competitive section, where there are neither rules nor limits as to style or runtime: short, medium-length, feature, fiction, non-fiction or animated films, series, audiovisual installations, future discoveries and contemporary classics as yet unseen in Spain. This is a section for films daring to try new angles and formats, a true open and high-risk zone.

All of the films in the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera Section compete for the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera Award coming with 20,000 euros shared between the director (6,000 euros) and distributor of the film in Spain (14,000 euros).

The Zabaltegi-Tabakalera Award is decided by a specially constituted jury of professionals from the worlds of cinema and culture.
