Ortometraggi Film Festival is a short film festival (including documentaries, animation, fiction and art video) whose aim is to raise awareness on issues related to environment, food, sustainability and the present relationship between mankind and nature.

This year, the fourth edition of Ortometraggi Film Festival will be held in Turin, one of the most important business and cultural centre in Northern Italy.

Ortometraggi Film Festival 2021 is designed to be enjoyed both in-person and online. Together with the live show, the selected short films will be released for a limited period on a dedicated online platform. The directors will also be given the chance to take part in online interviews, in order to create an interactive event where audience and directors can talk about cinema, nature and sustainability.

This edition’s categories are distinguished by three main themes, in order to explore the subject of the relationship between man and nature from different points of view and facets.

Based on the following categories, directors are invited to submit their short films:

1. Technology and Agricolture

2. Earth and Digital

3. City and Food

Further informations about the event will soon be available on the web site.

The jury will nominate three awards by categories:

- Best Documentary
- Best Fiction
- Best Animation

and also mentions for "Best Actor/Actress" and "Best Ortometraggi Short-Film".

The deadline to submit the short film is 23.59 pm on 22/04/2021, during the Earth Day.

The festival is thematic, then the films have to be coherent with the general theme: relationship between man and nature. For more information about the theme, please, visit the website or contact us.

The short films which are thematically and qualitatively appropriate will be admitted to the screening.

The competition will be divided into Animation, Fiction, Documentaries, Art Video and Music Video.

Subtitles in English or in Italian are mandatory. For each selected movie it’ll be requested:

- the file with english subtitles embedded
- the file without subtitles
- the .srt file

The movies will be screened in a special location in the city of Turin and also online, to reach a wide and passionate public and to regulate gatherings in compliance with Italian health regulations. The event date could change, according to the safety dispositions related to the Covid-19 emergency.

Prizes will be awarded by the jury, awarding a prize for each film genre (Animation, Fiction, Documentaries, Art Video and Music Video), if each section has an appropriate number of short films in competition.
