These productions must be from, about, by or related in some way to Latin America, Spain or Portugal or their cultural heritage.

NEFIAC has three competition categories in its program receiving a cash prize. Not all films accepted for screening during the festival will be included in the award categories. ONLY films with English subtitles will be accepted for the competition programs. Our Selection Committee will be choosing the films that qualify for each program and a guest jury attending the festival will award the prizes for each category. The awards will be announced at the closing ceremony. The categories are:

To be eligible for the Emerging Director’s Award, the production must be one of the director’s first three feature narrative films, completed no more than three years prior to the date of the festival.
