TO PARTICIPATE

The FICIE has a competitive section, which is one of its objectives. It supposes the putting in
value of the work of the Author / Producer / Distributor in front of the Jury and puts it also in
contact with the public, being the communication between equals and therefore enriching the
Seventh Art with the contributions of both parties.

In this way, all web users (registered or not) can link videos and comments through Facebook
and Twitter. The FICIE website is also prepared so that the user (registered or not) can link the
video he wants to comment with his web or blog.

In this sense, the Organization is committed to the socialization of the web


www.festivalcineelx.es allowing only registered users to vote, comment, and compete, as well
as write comments through the online platform itself and / or Facebook and Twitter .

The Organization moderates but is exempt from any responsibility for comments made, both on
the official platform and on Facebook and Twitter.

TO VOTE

Voting is another objective of this edition. You can vote for all the shorts that are considered.
The website www.festivalcineelx.es allows the registered user to make a single video vote.

You cannot vote on the associated online platforms. It is a unique prerogative of the official FICIE
platform.

The way to carry out the voting is by accessing the desired short film tab and, from there,
registered users will have a voting button that will be activated once they have seen at least
three quarters of the video.

Registered users can view and vote all the videos presented in the open mode from the date
of publication of the bases of this edition until 23:59:59 (Spanish time) on 07/19/2018. From
then on, the official FICIE platform will be closed and the most voted short film will be
automatically shown by the registered users and, therefore, the winner of the Online Public
Award of this edition, with 500 euros and “Dama” Trophy.

The Organization reserves the right to cancel any vote issued fraudulently or due to any type
of attempt to manipulate the voting system.

The Organization is also exonerated of all responsibility in case of malfunctioning of the Internet
network that prevents the normal development of the contest for reasons beyond the
ORganization and, especially, for external acts of bad faith.
