Looking for films, short films, documentaries of contemporary indie cinema that you can't find in mainstream channels. Avant-garde, experiments, new languages: the cinema laboratory of the future. All screener in English must be subtitled in Italian. ALL NON-ENGLISH SCREENERS MUST BE SUBTITLED IN ITALIAN AND ENGLISH. ALL ENGLISH SCREENERS MUST BE SUBTITLED IN ITALIAN.

Indiecinema film festival allows audiences all over the world to discover the latest innovations and avant-garde languages of non-mainstream cinema. Our focus is on the invention that goes beyond pre-packaged and safe models to explore the new languages of the seventh art.

A festival to discover and promote the hidden treasures and filmmakers of "truly" independent cinema. In recent years, technology has "democratized" the art of cinema and allowed the birth of a creative ferment never seen before, works free from the usual "industrial" patterns that bring an air of renewal.

We think of cinema as art: the technical packaging of a film is not important to us but only its artistic quality. It doesn't matter what budget you shot your movie on. If it is engaging and exciting for the public, it is what we are looking for. Discover talents in order to promote them to the largest audience possible.

The screenings of the films take place quarterly on the Indiecinema streaming channel to culminate in the live evenings for the annual award ceremony of the winners in Flavio theater, in front of the Colosseum in Rome, with the participation of the directors, actors, press and public. The winning films will be broadcast on the Indie cinema channel and will be advertised to a large audience with the prizes awarded for a period of six months.

The winning films will not simply be shown online, but will have an ongoing digital advertising campaign and will be followed step by step in a series of in-depth web marketing analyzes through audience segmentation based on ratings, minutes watched, etc., to get the maximum public success.

The prizes will come from a qualified jury at the end of the online sessions that will take place on the channel www.indiecinema.it. The public will also be able to watch and vote on the film to award the Audience Award, by leaving a vote from 1 to 10 in the comments section under each work.
