The above-mentioned caption “still to be produced” means that only a minor part of the footage must have been filmed both at the moment of Festival submission and at the moment of Festival screening. The selected authors will be required to provide a self-certification through the acceptance letter and the disclaimer both to be sent by the proposer. The Festival Direction, at its own discretion, will state whether this requirement is actually fulfilled.
