💥Here we go! The 3rd edition is finally open! 💥

After the great success of the first two editions we are ready to evolve!
The Best Short Film of the first edition was "Feeling Through" by Doug Roland an ACADEMY AWARD© nominated short film.
The Oυδεις International Film Festival is an annual short film competition, which will be held in Anteo Palazzo del Cinema, in the heart of Milan. From the first year is going to become one of the most popular festival out of more than 10.000 film festivals.
Therefore, with this Festival we hope to encourage authors and artists and give them the right showcase to emerge in the world of cinema.


A jury of experts made up of international award-winning directors, screenwriters, DoPs and editors, will reward the best filmmakers.

The best short films of the season that will be screened in the gala events (May/June 2024), competing for the awards:

🏆Best Short Film
🏆Best Italian Short Film
🏆 Best Director
🏆 Best Screenplay
🏆 Best Leading Performance
🏆 Best Supporting Performace

The "Best Short Film" will be awarded the prestigious "Oudeis Trophy", a unique and inimitable trophy, created exclusively for the festival by Society Award® (Society Awards is responsible for the design and manufacturing of the statuettes for numerous entertainment industry awards, including the Emmy Award, Golden Globe Award, YouTube Creator Award..).
Others will be rewarded with a silver commemorative plaque.

    I am really happy to have had my short filme selected to this festival. I am convinced this will be soon a top one amongst the more than 15 thousand worldwide. Such a shame the selected films could not take part in a presencial event which I believe was for Covid restrictions but hopefully next time will be different! Looking forward to submitting my next projects! Thank you
