and videos made by and/or about Latino/as in the U.S. or the rest of the world, as well as films and videos by and/or about indigenous groups of the
Americas are also invited to participate.

General guidelines by which the festival determines eligibility:

• Contemporary films made by Latinos (from any part of the world) AND/OR about Latinos (in any part of the world) are eligible to participate.
• Contemporary films made by indigenous groups of the Americas AND/OR about indigenous groups of the Americas are eligible to participate.
Please note that a film does not have to be both made by AND about Latino/as or Indigenous groups of the Americas ; either of these elements will qualify a film for submission and review.

For youth films, music that is not original to the production, but follows all copyright and intellectual property rights laws, may be used in conjunction with an original video production.
