Festival start: 01 November 2020      Festival end: 07 November 2020

Ibicine is a Festival that is born #fortheloveofcinema with the need to bring cinema in short format to the people of Ibiza. That is why the Festival is made up of several Semifinals and a Final, to create this continuous program of meeting point with cinema on the island.

Ibicine seeks to enhance the short film, rewarding by category each of the technical and artistic aspects that have a place in a film production. In addition to this, promoting professional cinema on the island, so that a meeting point is created with industry professionals to make relationships within the sector.

Ibiza is the perfect place to disconnect from routines and big cities, making it a perfect setting for this meeting where you can generate new projects, conferences, courses, and ultimately create culture and a film school.

4. AWARDS AND STATUES

The prize for each of the categories will be a "Astarté Prize" statuette.

4.1. FIGURINE - ASTARTÉ AWARD

Tanit, the goddess of Ibiza, was the most important goddess of Carthaginian mythology, the consort of Baal and patron saint of Carthage. It was equivalent to the Phoenician goddess Astarte, who represented the cult of mother nature, life and fertility, as well as the exaltation of love and carnal pleasures.
The statuettes, designed by the Madrid-based sculptor living in Ibiza, Andrés Herráez Sánchez de las Matas, represent the gaze of the goddess on celluloid, as a metaphor for the stories to which the magic of cinema gives life.
