BCN Sports Film is part of the World FICTS Challenge, an international circuit of 18 festivals dedicated to sports-themed audiovisual productions. The Fédération Internationale Cinéma te Télévision Sportifs (FICTS), founder and sponsor of the circuit, is a non-profit association that, with the collaboration of the 116 member countries and the International Olympic Committee, promotes Olympism, and the ethical and cultural sport through film and television.
The main objectives of BCN Sports Film are research, dissemination and knowledge of audiovisual creations related to sports in general. The phenomenon of sport as a representation of society explains its importance as a spectacle, but there is nothing better than this cinematic spectacle to understand its virtues.

The BCN Sports Film Festival brings sport closer to the little ones to use it as an educational tool. With the collaboration of the FILMCLUB pedagogical dossiers, a series of productions have been selected with the aim of making schoolchildren reflect on issues related to immigration, health, stereotypes or gender diversity. The school sessions are screened in person on February 20, 21 and 22 and online from January 15 to March 30.
BCN SportsFilm is organized by the Barcelona Olympic Foundation and FICTS , and is supported by Barcelona City Council, and is linked to the IBE, the Catalonia Film Festival and the Catalan Film Academy.
