The committee usually meets three times a year: once during the UNICA Congress, once hosted by a committee member and once at the venue for the next UNICA Festival. Elections are held every third UNICA Congress. Decisions of the committee are mainly subject to approval by the next General Assembly.
UNICA's Film Library, established in 1938, currently has over 1200 works in the form of film and video. The oldest item dates from 1935. The film and video copies in the library have been donated by their makers and the corresponding national organisations. There is a digital catalogue on the Internet with detailed information on the titles of the films in the library.
This is the highlight of UNICA's annual meeting when each member presents a selection of films.
Prizes are awarded by an international jury which often includes professional filmmakers.
The most interesting productions are awarded gold, silver or bronze medals.
The Young UNICA competition is intended for young filmmakers up to the age of 25. It is included in the competition of the national programmes.
