8h COLLATERAL 102 festival will finally allow us to promote the spread of international cinema.

Collateral 102 introduces a new section called 'Short Film Guaranteed Screening,' which screens all submitted films without any preselection from our side. BY SUBMITTING YOUR FILM TO THIS SECTION, IT WILL DEFINITELY BE SCREENED TO THE AUDIENCE DURING THE FESTIVAL.

Why are we doing this?

Today, there are over 10,000 film festivals worldwide, and the film selection processes are highly subjective and sometimes non-existent. Collateral 102, aware of the significant challenges filmmakers face in navigating the festival circuit, has decided to guarantee a section where the screening is 100% assured. This section is open to short films of all genres, including documentaries, with a maximum duration of 45 minutes.

COLLATERAL 102 festival comes from the support of different associations that love art with no boundaries or inhibitions. COLLATERAL 102 festival addresses to short and feature films, documentaries and animated films from all over the world.

Our goal is to make COLLATERAL 102 a meeting place for directors, producers, actors and actresses, distributors and the crew in general, those who see Turin not only as a fascinating town but also as a place of great opportunities for art circulation.
