There are too many festivals and it is almost impossible to recognize which could be really valuable for your distribution. Many are very costly and give no chance to get selected if you don't have a distributor. We created a festival that could offer a honest, equal competition, within reach of everyone all around the world. Nobody else offers so much for such a small fee.

Rome Independent Prisma Awards is a monthly award ceremony, with live screenings, that does not ask you for an unjustifiable fee, where your movie can compete with other independent films and with world-class talents.

A precious, affordable tool to showcase their talent to a true audience of jurors in a stage-to-stage competition with constant feedback. Winning films don't just get a laurel. They become part of a living, true festival. Our latest president of the Jury has been Silvano Agosti, legendary italian director that has worked alongside the greatest italian professionals like Storaro, Morricone, Piovani and others. We had a great screening in Rome with many people in Cinema Azzurro Scipioni.

We're now ready for our second year!
