The films submitted to the Open Frame will also be considered for inclusion in <a href="http://creativecontent.unesco.org">UNESCO's Audiovisual E-platform</a>, a multicultural, on-line catalogue that facilitates the international exchange and dissemination of outstanding audiovisual productions. The final selection for the E-platform will be announced separately at a later stage.
