The Madrid International Film Festival has as its objective the promotion of cinematographic art by presenting films of quality and entertainment. The Madrid International Film Festival is an annual event based in the City of Madrid in Spain; it is possible that each film nominated may be presented more than once.
Feature films, documentaries and short subjects of any genre on video and DVD are selected by invitation from entries to the festival.
Entries must have been produced within the last four years. All films in a language other than English must be subtitled in English, we also welcome but it is not compulsory to have Spanish as well as English subtitles were the film is in neither English or Spanish to increase the possible markets, unless dialogue or commentary is unnecessary for comprehension and appreciation. In the exceptional event that an unsubtitled print is accepted, English and Spanish dialogue lists are required.

The Festival is open to the public as well as attending distribution and sales professionals.
