For five days the Festival and the subsequent Meeting of Emerging Creators becomes a reference territory and a framework for reflection on the international independent film scene, encouraging the exchange of ideas, experience and knowledge. The event is constituted as an agent of research, practice and diffusion for the works of emerging filmmakers.
To participate in the open program of the International Zinema Fest, an international call for proposals is being launched, which includes those proposals that have an impact on contemporary audiovisual practices. The aim of this call is to give visibility to emerging creators from both the local and international scene. The aim of the call is to bring the most recent works by young filmmakers to the festival's audience, so that they can dialogue with the works of other established filmmakers.

Para participar en el programa abierto del International Zinema Fest se lanza una convocatoria internacional que da cabida a aquellas propuestas que inciden en las prácticas audiovisuales contemporáneas. El objetivo de esta convocatoria es dar visibilidad a los creadores emergentes tanto del panorama local como internacional. La convocatoria tiene como objetivo acercar al público del festival las obras más recientes de jóvenes realizadores, para que dialoguen con las obras de otros cineastas consagrados.
It is a film and education festival that works with schools in the Basque Country by providing them with a programme of sessions in which they can show and share audiovisual micronarratives made by students. The festival proposes to promote themes inspired by the construction of a more just and supportive society, developing proposals that propose, individually and collectively, to build a peaceful coexistence that respects human rights.
The festival encourages the participation of the educational community by opening up the possibility of participation to public, private or subsidised infant, primary, secondary, high school and vocational training centres in the Basque Country. Schools can participate by sending in the films made by their students, and then having access to the screening and debate sessions, the educational activities, as well as the online advisory service and the on-site support provided in the construction of the chosen stories until the final result.
