If you directed a short film or a feature film attributable to the genre of fantastic cinema and aimed at an audience of young viewers, then the International Competition of Visioni Fantastiche is for you. Now in its second edition, Visioni Fantastiche is in fact the film festival for schools where filling the role of jurors are students from 6 to 19 years old, divided into 5 juries according to their age groups, reflecting the 5 categories of the Competition: 6+, 9+, 12+, 16+ and 18+. While to younger students (belonging to juries 6+, 9+, 12+ and 16+) we will propose short film selections, the Competition for the 18+ jury (i.e. students of the last years of high school and university students) will propose the viewing a selection of feature films. Fiction and animation works exploring fantastic cinema in its broadest sense are admitted to the International Competition. Since the mission of Visioni Fantastiche is to contribute creating a conscious visual culture, the selection of the films of the Competition will prefer works where fantastic and entertainment elements combine, enhancing it, with the didactic and educational component.
At stake there will be two cash prizes of € 1,000.00, awarded respectively to Best Short Film and Best Feature Film. As far short films, the work winning the prize will be the one obtaining the highest vote through the 4 categories of the Competition dedicated to short films. The Award for Best Feature Film will be attributed instead to the work most voted among those presented in the only category of the Competition reserved for feature films, that is the 18+.
Registering your film is easy! First of all, we invite you to read the general rules of the Festival and register your film through one of our partner platforms: FilmFreeway, Festhome, Shortfilmdepot. We remind you that, during the registration phase, it is possible to indicate a specific age group for which your work is more suitable; in any case the assignment to one of the categories of the Competition will depend on the unquestionable judgment of the Artistic Direction of the Festival.
While registration of feature films is free, a fee of € 10 will be charged for short films. We point out the possibility of taking advantage of a discount in the case of multiple registrations by the same submitter (animation schools, film institutes, production companies, etc.), consisting of € 10 for every 4 short films.
