The festival also features a wide variety of parallel activities and retrospectives which round off its programme.
You can submit your film on the festival's website. The film submission period is normally from November to December inclusive
If you have submitted your film in a language that contains non-Latin characters, the easiest way to avoid mistakes when we reference your film is for you to send us corrected details for names, titles, etc. to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The list of selected documentaries will be announced on the festival's official website. Likewise, once the committee has completed the selection process, everyone of the participants shall be notified of the committee’s decision, whether it is favorable or not.
It is a text file that contains all the dialogues -or words- that appear in the film. With it, the work of the translator is easier.
In the Competitive sections, only films with the following formats shall be screened: DCP or high-resolution digital files.
The copies may be collected by their authors or they will be returned by the Festival’s organization by post to the address indicated for this purpose in the inscription.
You can download a file containing the full programme on this website, or pick one up at any of the festival venues.
The programme will be available on the festival's website. You can view the programme by day to find screening information: date, schedule, duration and screening venue. You can also view all of the screening details for any given film on the film’s information page.
The festival will also feature two publications: the festival programme, which can be picked up free of charge at any of the festival venues, and the catalogue, which can be purchased at the ticket office once the festival is underway.
Publications from previous years can be purchased from the ticket office and at the Cineteca Madrid bookshop (Matadero).
The screening schedule will be available on the festival’s website roughly ten days to one week before the festival begins. You will be able to check the programme and schedule for the Official Section, the Informative Section, and the Parallel Activities.
The festival DOCUMENTAMADRID does not own the films’ subtitles. They are owned by the subtitling company that created them for the edition at which the film was screened. If you contact the festival, the organisational team will be able to put you in touch with the relevant company.
