The Asoc. Cultural «El Bujío» of Segura de León (Badajoz), in its spirit of paying homage to and remembering Andrés Oyola Fabián, neighbor and friend of our people, tireless researcher and disseminator in the social and human sphere, organizes , in collaboration and with the support of the Ayuntamiento de Segura de León and the Diputación de Badajoz, the First Edition of the “Andrés Oyola Fabián” International Historical and Social Documentary Festival (OFFCINEDOC)”
Once the participating works have been received and provided that they comply with the aspects set out in the Bases, a selection of them will be made by the organization and they will be transferred to an international jury made up of professionals from the audiovisual field and from different subjects related to the general culture, as well as other members that we will call «popular jury», who although they are not professionals in the field, have sufficient criteria to assess the selected works, understanding that in this way, a fair assessment will be made that will encompass both the technical, such as the cultural value and knowledge provided by the work.
Depending on the number of works presented and selected, different projections will be made during the week of August 15 to 21, outdoors and totally free for attendees.
To end the Festival, we will celebrate the Closing Gala on Saturday, August 27, in which the Prizes will be awarded to the winning works and some activity will be carried out in memory of the figure of Andrés Oyola Fabián. As the date approaches, the official program of the Festival will be published with all the details.
As a last aim, with this first edition we want to launch a project where all kinds of documents, historical, anthropological, social, and cultural contributions in general are collected, which in short or feature film format, make up an audiovisual file with its name and located in the House of Culture of Segura de León, where students, curious and anyone who wants to, can go in search of new knowledge.
