Flash Competition

2021 Program

Flash competition is a new competition initiated this year at FID which will show films as dazzling as lightnings, true cinematic proposals, regardless of their brief duration.
This competition is transversal to all the other competitions, just as the one for first films and candidates for the Cnap Prize. Two prizes will be awarded, including, for the first time this year, the Alice Guy Prize, which will go to a female director in the Flash competition.
