JURY

The jury is comprised of cinema and culture professionals and personalities from the region of Murcia, as well as both national and international.

Decisions of the jury are final and irrevocable. If anyone wants to discuss this, the festival is willing to form a circle of death for it. However, be warned that we reserve the right to use terrible deadly weapons for the dispute, we have a blood-thirsty troll trained for these cases, and we’ve watched plenty of films where methods of body disposal are thoroughly explained.
