Regular Deadline

Roma Short Film Festival will announce the name of the selected entries for this edition of the festival on December 27, 2020, on all of its platforms, including the festival's website, Filmfreeway page and Instagram account, and the winners will be announced on March 4, 2021.

Roma Short Film Festival is a newly-founded festival based in Rome (Italy) that aims to create an opportunity for emerging filmmakers. Our goal is to support low budget and underground films that create new experiences and narrate unique stories with limited resources. Understanding how filmmakers around the world work, how young filmmakers get creative to get past the obstacles of production, and how their attempts can lead to a new form of cinema are among the things we care about. We strive to play a small role in the emergence of the new generation in the world of independent filmmaking by helping young filmmakers, actors, cinematographers, editors and producers to be heard and to get their messages across.
