We will be accepting fiction and animated short films at the exhibition, of any subject. We do not accept documentaries, music videos or video art. Each director is allowed to participate with a maximum of two works, to be completed by 01/01/2018. Short films must have a maximum running time of 15 mins, excluding credits. Works already enrolled in other festivals are also accepted. Films of any origin or language are allowed. For all non-Italian films, Italian and/or English language subtitles will be required, plus the dialogue list in Italian and/or English.

The organization reserves the right to admit to the contest short films notwithstanding the current regulations.


For each single short film submitted, the following are compulsory:

– The purchase of the “Registration Fee” in the appropriate section of the site.
– Completion of all required fields on the checkout page.
– Payment of the membership fee via Paypal (or credit card).
– Receipt of the confirmation email from the automatic enrolment system.

Individual registration methods provided through other portals are also valid (Filmfreeway, Festhome). Registration must be carried out online on the dedicated part of the site no later than 23:59 local time on May 15th, 2021. The participation fee is 15,00 Euros, which contributes to the festival’s application processing expenses. By enrolling to the contest, each author declares himself/ herself responsible for the content of his/her work. In case of failure to comply with these conditions the candidate will be excluded from the event. All entries that comply with the current regulation will be screened by the organizing commission, which, at it’s sole discretion, will select participants of the contest to be presented to the award-assigning jury. Submitted material will not be returned, and will be archived. It is possible that some material may be re-used in other events, as clips, for non-commercial use.

The selection of the admitted short films and the corresponding screening days will be communicated in good time on the following site: so as to allow the authors to be present at the screening and/or, eventually, at the awards ceremony.
The Jury, made up of Cinema professionals, will assign the awards and any special mentions. The Young Jury will also decide on the best film of the festival. There will also be a prize awarded by the public audience present at the screenings.

Personal data (L. 675/96) will be processed for the purposes of the festival only.

Registration for enrolment implies full acceptance of the current regulations. For any information not provided, the Italian Civil Code rules apply.
