SUBMISSION PREMIUM

 

We accept films of all kinds, on any topic, from any country in the world. Fiction, animation, videoclip, advertising, digital art, documentary and mockumentary… the result will be a celebration of ultra-short cinema, an explosion of ideas, contaminations and stimuli.

The selection team pays particular attention to the geographical composition of the competition: MAX3MIN opens windows on to unconventional stories far from Western-centric narrations, to reflect as far as possible the heterogeneity of the films entered and the different national cultures of the various countries.

Alongside the International Competition, the NEXT GEN prize is back, dedicated to the best short films made by students at film schools and academies all over the world, with the aim of encouraging the study of moving images, giving aspiring directors a concrete opportunity to compete in an international competition.

And for the first time, a special section, in collaboration with Blackball, an Italian production company which uses the most innovative techniques in the creation of films and advertising. The focus is on the crafting, therefore rewarding quality in terms of how the creative idea is actually made.
