#BREAKTHESURFACE / OUR 6TH CALL FOR ENTRIES IS LIVE HERE

TEAR YOUR HEART APART AND SHOW IT TO OUR AUDIENCE

Since its birth in 2017, our festival committed to a deep and thoughful sifting of the international short film panorama, trying to showcase a selection that is able to portray the actual variety in languages, forms, innovations and genre films that is today independent cinema. We look for films that are able to release a very strong and deep emotional and intellectual pull in the spectator and show signs or premonitions of an author to come.

BE JUDGED, BE PART

Our jury is made of both award winning professionals from the italian film industry and from independent film directors from all around the world that form our Board of Directors. All the selected in our festival and in its parallel screenings Short Days are invited to stay in the board forever.
