Serielizados Fest 2021 – Call for series – Rules and regulations

Introduction

The 8th edition of Serielizados Fest, International TV Series Festival, will take place from the 19th until the 30th of October 2021. Events and screenings will be held in Barcelona and Madrid, and our selection of series and documentaries will also be available in a limited screening at Filmin VOD platform. Serielizados Fest is open to professional guests and press, but our main goal is to reach out to general audiences who love television and want to discover what’s new all over the world.
