We are pleased to announce the 5th edition of the MEET International Film
Festival featuring short films made by schools and educational institutions
throughout the world.

This year the Festival will take place in Rome from 23 to 27 September 2019 and
is being organised through a grant from the Italian Ministries of Education and of
Culture within the framework of the national “Cinema at School” initiative.

MEET Film Festival aims to raise awareness of the links between culture, education, training and cinema and to become an innovative environment where schools, institutions, associations and independent film directors can meet, discuss and exchange audiovisual productions inspired by educational issues.
The festival promotes the knowledge and circulation of short films that are distinguished by the critical and original ways in which they interpret the role of cinema at school. During the festival a number workshops will take place to engage participating students in the realization of short films.

    The festival took place in Garbatella, a very picturesque neighborhood of Rome. The filmmakers of the selected films had paid stay and dinner during the festival days. The people of the organization were very welcoming and helpful. Following the screening of each film, the director was invited to share some of his experience in making the film. Very prolific. Many thanks to the organization!
