Festival start: 01 June 2020      Festival end: 30 June 2020

What we could never have imagined has happened: a pandemic and a global confinement.
We are living a new historical experience that affects all dimensions of human life. But, in the digital age, we can also overturn this situation. We need to be creative: redefining our social relations and our relationship with nature.

DocuVir.20 is a laboratory of socio-cultural innovation. We invite you to participate in this project. We are seeking for cultural vaccines and social antidotes. Antidotes to everything that poisons social life and human interaction: fake news, lies, misinformation. Antidotes for isolation and loneliness.

Put your imagination to work. Put it to work with the instrument that today allows us to be even more connected than ever before: your mobile phone or any other tool that can record how our life is changing.

Best Short Film: 350 euros

Audience Award: 150 euros
