The Festival will take place in Rivoli from the 16th to the 19th of September 2021 and live on our FaceBook page and YouTube channel.
The contest is open to movie directors of all kinds and levels, advanced and newcomers.
Films should be no longer than 15 minutes, including the headlines and credits.
We propose 3 themes to leave wide space for creativity:
a) Social Matters or themes involving women’s conditions
b) “No language” works
c) Themes related to the environment, either short clips or documentaries.
These films focus on topics regarding the MINORITIES of all kinds, denounce violence on weak categories, disabilities in the acceptance of this term, violence, youth issues, bullying, unemployment, problems faced by elders, persecution under any ethical form, religion, freedom of thought and speech, violence against women (physical and/ or psychological) as well as emargination against women/ children.
Movie clips in which the part of the image and/ or music is predominant compared to the speaking part, in particular, a limit of 15 dialogues between the actors is mandatory FOR clips up to the length of 15 MINUTES.
The theme of the environment means DENUNCIATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST NATURE as well as towards ANIMALS. In this section we will accept both short movies as well as short documentaries having a maximum length of 15 minutes.
These requests must not be considered "limits" but an encouragement to creativity for writers, directors and actors.
