As well,

Each year AVIFF creates collaborations with European and international festivals. Films in official selection of the year and previous years are presented according to a selection decided in agreement with the host festival.
In particular: 'IMPAC' Festival (Pretoria South Africa), 'Bideodromo International Experimental Film Festival' (Bilbao, Spain)

Part of the official selection of AVIFF is presented in New York at the 'Angel Orensanz Foundation' during the year and is the subject of an event organized by the foundation and the AVIFF team

In 2020 a new collaboration with Richard Martin, Canadian film director, will lead to screenings of the official AVIFF selection in Vancouver (Canada)

B&W: For each promotion of an AVIFF selection in another festival during the current year a promotional package of 150 euros will be asked to the directors whose films are included in this selection. They are of course free to refuse.
In this proposal will be detailed the place, dates and presentation of the host festival
