"Through the sorrow all through our splendour
Don’t take offence at my innuendo." (Queen)

In an epoch where social realities are more than ever constructed on the basis of allegations that are all but covert, we are keen to spot in films every attempt to let drop a hint, insinuate, allude to and use every figurative instrument (as double-meanings, allusions, insinuations, apparently innocent words, allegations, rumors, suggestive remarks, etc.) in order to support by any means the own particular and interested narrative.

The Innuendo International Film Festival is made with love from filmmakers for filmmakers! We love cinema and we would like to promote and push your film through our festival by giving your film the chance to be screened in front of an open-minded audience and offering the creators the possibility to talk directly with the spectators in a friendly familiar atmosphere with meet and greet areas to get connected with other filmmakers and professionals to build up your network.

Looking forward to seeing you!

    Semplice ma efficace, minimale ma diretto.
    Grande selezione di materiale di difficile fruizione.
    Speriamo di conoscerci.
    Inneuendo propone il cinema nuovo. Lintano dai Salotti, dai danari, dal prevedibile.

    So excited to have my film, SPY, included in the festival. Such an incredible selection of films and it is an honour to be in the same company. Great communication. Very organised. Absolute value on many levels. And I felt valued as a filmmaker. Thank you!

  • Quite a nice emerging festival with a lot of passion for independent cinema.
    Communication and networking could be better and live discussions would be great.
