2006 Riviera Maya Underground Film Festival: Call for Entries

Ok, this is a tough one. I just found out about the Riviera Maya Underground Film Festival, yet their website is entirely in Spanish, which I don’t speak, and also entirely in Flash so I can’t even run a rough Babelfish translation of the site. Therefore I can’t find out anything about it really.

However, on this site and on this one they seem to say that there is a call for entries with a deadline of September 25th. If I’m mistaken, my apologies. And I can at least figure out that the festival runs this year Oct. 18-22. I assume you need to speak Spanish to enter, or be able to read it and find their submission guidelines. Warning: If you go to the RMUFF site, it’s got some heavy duty Flash that’s really slowing down my computer.

And if you want to find out about the Mayan Riviera, you can visit the area’s tourist website.

    Dear Mister, Miss,

    In 2007, Eicar, the International Film School of Paris, has sent a DVD of the students. As I am in charge of the festivals in the school, I would like to have a return of your feeling regarding the films. I hope that some of them have withdrawn your attention and that these films have been selected.
    I wait for your collaboration to have a feed-back from you, and would appreciate that our students be able to present their productions in the 2008 Festival. So, please could you let me know about the future call of applications (details such as deadlines, format, themes…).

    All the best,
    Laurence Vasseur
