Among the principal functions of RTVE as a public service company is to foster equality between people, no matter what their sex, race or religion; backing artistic creation in any form and facilitating knowledge of potentially interesting films and audiovisual works.
In this context, and with a view to helping to eliminate all discriminatory barriers, promoting social and labour inclusion and facilitating equal opportunities, RTVE created –as part of activities at the San Sebastian International Film Festival– the Award entitled “Another Look".
RTVE wishes to reward a cinema focussing on subjects related to the female world; directed, starring or written by women. Or by men whose films show particular sensitivity towards the world in question. Films, at the end of the day, demonstrating the point of view, concerns and needs, desires and yearnings of 50% of the population. A female universe which doesn’t always find it easy to express itself.
A jury specially created for that will grant the “RTVE - Another Look” Award to one of the films presented in any section of the San Sebastian International Film Festival and having a purpose corresponding to that stated above.
This Award consists of acquiring the right to broadcast the film on television for the general public.
