EATSA – ATFF will be structured into three parallel sections:
a) Promotional Films – This section will include ﬁlms produced for a speciﬁc client (DMO, companies or other organisations) 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.
b) Educational Films – 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 introduce an innovative process in society or a speciﬁc industry.
c) Documentaries & TV Reports – 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 useful role, like the fact that they are independent productions gives them the critical distance that allows them to expose negative situations that need correction.
