The ROIFA "Rome Outcast Independent Film Award" was created with the purpose of giving space to the authors of independent feature and short films around the world and to offer them a direct and concrete way to communicate with the professionals of the industry, which is why the winners of the annual edition will receive, among other prizes, a review written by an important member of the Accademia del Cinema Italiano, and a direct meeting with the producer of Kimera Film, production company that counts among its titles also "Don't be bad", film by Claudio Calligari that launched the career of Alessandro Borhi.
We believe that the most interesting future for cinema has to be discovered in today's independent cinema, from which the strongest and most incisive ideas and the most personal and courageous authors often emerge. For this reason, our festival accepts all kinds of short and feature films, of any length and with any theme. We want every author to have the possibility to express himself in the way he prefers, without restrictions.
Unlike many independent festivals, every year we will hold a live screening event at a film school in Rome, the "CineTv Roberto Rossellini". The winning films will hence be screened in an environment composed of students, teachers, professionals, critics and simple amateurs.

Finalists will be announced each month.
- All finalists will receive a special laurel and will be published on our social pages:

Among the finalists will be chosen the winners for the following categories:

- Best Short Film
- Best Feature Film
- Best Director
- Best Screenplay
- Best Editing
- Best Original Score
- Best Cinematography
- Best Acting

All winners will be published on our social pages.
- All winners will receive a certificate.
- The winners of the "Best Feature Film" and "Best Short Film" awards will join the nominees of the annual edition.

The winners of the annual edition will be announced during the live ceremony that will be held at the official screening room of the film institute "Cine Tv Roberto Rossellini" in Rome (The ceremony will be simultaneously followable on both Twich and Youtube).
- All the nominees of the "Best Short Film" award will be screened during the ceremony.
- The winner of the "Best Feature Film" award will be screened at the end of the ceremony.
- The winners of all categories will receive the trophy.
- Between the winner of the "Best Feature Film" award and the winner of the "Best Short Film" award will be chosen the most valid product, which will also receive a direct meeting with the producer of "Kimera Films", production company that counts among its titles also "Don't be bad", film by Claudio Calligari that launched the career of Alessandro Borghi.

    I was originally an actress, but I made my debut as a director with a scenario I wrote, and I was in charge of producing and editing myself. I worked hard to make it, and I'm honored to have selected my work at such an excellent film festival. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Based on this experience, I will continue to make good movies in the future.
