There are too many festivals and it is impossible to recognize which could be valuable for you. Many are very costly and give no chance to get selected without having contacts. We created Rome Independent Prisma Awards, a monthly award ceremony with live and online screenings that doesn't ask you for a foolish fee, where your film can participate with other independent movies and with world-class talents in an equal competition, within reach of everyone all around the world. Nobody else offers so much for such a small fee.

Rome Independent Prisma Awards was founded by Stefano Perletta in 2018. Hosted by Cinema Azzurro Scipioni, in its first year it saw Silvano Agosti as the president of the jury, a legendary italian director that has worked alongside the greatest italian professionals like Storaro, Morricone, Piovani and many others. Over the course of its second year it moved to Cinema dei Piccoli, one of the oldest movie theaters of Rome in the heart of Villa Borghese park since 1934.

Our winning films have gone all the way to A-tier festivals like โ€œMay Dayโ€, 1st annual awards winner and Oscar-shortlisted film, โ€œAlienโ€œ by Yeon Je-Wang and โ€œInanimateโ€ by Lucia Bulgheroni that got into Cannes Cinefondation, โ€œPierdete entre los muertosโ€ by Ruben Gutierrez that was showcased into the feature films at Rotterdam Film Festival and many others.

We just launched our third yearly cycle, with a total renewal and a new artistic direction curated by Marcello Di Trocchio. Here you can find some of our fresh news: www.romeprismafilmawards.com/whatsnew

    I was highly impressed by the way the screening and the award function was held. It was flawless, professional and engaging. And even though my film didn't win, i have no regrets losing to the brilliant films that was showcased in the October 2020 edition. Thank you for the great communication and hospitality. Keep up the amazing work guys! And I will submit my next film again haha.
