Attentive to young cinema since its inception, the festival aims to create a meeting point between the authors of the future, within the frame offered by the city of Castrovillari.
The first two editions saw great participation from the public who, in the 2020 edition, supported the event with a strong presence despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Driven by our new slogan SEE THE FUTURE. we are looking to showcase the 20 authors of the future: directors that are capable of shooting films that can reflect their innermost soul and their own personal gaze on the world. Wherever they are on the globe, whatever their budget is: we are aiming for the ones who can really speak from their soul into an original, new cinematic language, that can cheer our crowds and open their hearts.

 

Directors as Prantik Narayan Basu (Rotterdam IFF winner, Berlinale alumn), QIU Yang (Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner), Yorgos Zois (Semane de la Critique nominated), Guy Nattiv (Academy Awardยฎ winner), Alan King (Clermont-Ferrand official selected), Tommaso Santambrogio (Venice Film Festival winner), Anthony Nti (Academy Awardยฎ short listed), Jรฉrรฉmy Comte (Academy Awardยฎ nominated) has been part of our festival, showing their gazes and giving us a taste of what the future of cinema will be.

 

The $ 1000,00 cash prize will be divided between the two short films that will win the Best Short Film award and the Grand Jury Prize.

 

SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2021 EDITION ARE NOW OPEN.

 

The city of CASTROVILLARI

Castrovillari has always been, since Hellenic times, a strategic commercial spot to connect the rest of Italy to all the lands that lied in the south.

Inside the “Civita” stands the Aragonese Castle, built by order of Ferdinand of Aragon in 1461 and finished in 1490. Used as a prison from 1495 to 1995, the Castle has been restored in recent years and transformed into the most important cultural center of the city.
