SEE THE FUTURE.

 

 

3985 short films entered from 89 countries around the world, more than 1600 spectators, 48 short films selected, 10 Italian premieres, a world premiere, 40 awards assigned, 12 special guests, 7 partner festivals spread throughout Italy and coverage on social networks with more than 100,000 interactions in three year,ย the CASTROVILLARI FILM FESTIVAL is one of the fastest growing young festivals in Italy.

 

Our fourth edition will celebrate independent film authors from all around the world in our castle in Castrovillari, Calabria. We are looking to showcase the authors of the future: directors that are capable of shooting films that can reflect their innermost soul. Wherever they are in the world, whatever their budget is.

 

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) have been part of our festival, showing their gazes and giving us a taste of what the future of cinema will be.

 

We aim to create a live meeting place between authors, fans and spectators, offering aย cash prize of $1.000,00ย which will be divided between the Best Short Film and the Grand Jury Prize.

 

Our festival offers to all selected short films a post-production packageย that includes the translation of the films, the creation of the .srt subtitles in Italian or English and the finalization of the projection file.
All materials produced will be given free of charge to the producers and directorsย for a value of over $6.000,00 for the entire official selection.

 

We are interested in seeing your short film, in seeing your world, in being guided by your vision of the future. Our international jury is ready to watch your short film.

 

 

SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2022 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.
