New Directors

International competition between the first or second feature movies by their filmmakers, as yet unscreened – they can only have been released in the country of their production – and produced in the last year.

All of the films in this section compete for the Kutxabank-New Directors Award, coming with 50,000 euros distributed in equal parts between the director and the distributor of the film in Spain.

The Kutxabank-New Directors Award is sponsored by Kutxabank, an official Festival collaborator. The Jury of the Kutxabank-New Directors Award has the task of appraising and granting the awards to these films.

Films in the New Directors section are also candidates for the TCM Youth Award, decided by a jury of students between the ages of 18 and 15 years.
