"Oltre lo specchio" ("Through the Looking Glass") International Film Festival is a popular showcase of the best SCI-FI and FANTASY movies from all around the world.
There are 4 main sections:
- a competitive section for feature films ("Cine Futures") - with Italian premieres only;
- a non-competitive section for more experimental fiction and documentary movies and for short narrative films ("Enlightments"),;
- a non-competitive section for more commercial and high entertainment features ("Little Futures"), especially focused on young adults;
- a retrospective section ("Retro Futures") dedicated to a master of sci-fi and fantasy and to a special selection of movies from the past (Retro Futures is not open to submissions).
Along the screenings, there will also be other events like panels, masterclasses and workshops on sci-fi and fantasy literature, comics, tv series, videogames and on topics such as future urban development and the future of food.
"Oltre lo specchio" ("Through the Looking Glass") International Film Festival will have a jury to assign 4 awards to movies in its competitive section ("Cine Futures").
They are called "Premi Ciciarampa" ("Jabberwock Awards").
They are: Best Movie; Best Director; Best SFX; Most Innovative Movie.
There will also be an Audience Award.
The films submitted (both full features and shorts) need to be ITALIAN PREMIERES and remain so until the screening at the festival.
The submitters need to be the owners of the rights.
If you are selected the festival will not pay any screening fee nor will be obliged to invite the director or cast & crew.
