EATSA ART & TOURISM Film Festival receives films for selection in 3 competitive sections


This section will include films produced for a specific client (DMO, companies or other organizations) and their goal is to promote a given product, service or territory. Their general proposal is to get a persuasive impact on audiences, seducing them.


The main proposal of educational films is to disseminate new ideas or share some knowledge among audiences, and usually, they are part of more general communication programmes. They can serve as educational tools for school or professional education or just to introduce an innovative process in society or in a specific industry.


These are usually films created by independent producers or by television channels with the primary objective of informing on a given topic. These films can be both apologetic and critical of a given phenomenon. In the field of tourism, documentaries play a very useful role, since these are independent productions, that vests them with the critical distance that allows exposing negative situations that need correction.
