Pontino Short Film Festival

The Association LA DOMUS is organizing the VI Pontino Short Film Festival.

The festival will take place in the city of Latina (LT) from the 6th to the 10th of January.

There is not an entrance fee, neither a ticket to pay for the projections.

Its possible to enter up to two films per author: the films must have been completed after June and mustn't have been entered in a previous edition of the festival.

Films can last no more than 15 minutes, credits included.

For foreign movies it would be appreciated an Italian subtitle.

Exceptionally the commission can decide to admit films a little longer than the imposed limit.

The plot of the movies is a free choice of the author, but documentaries and videoclip are not admitted.

The competition has four sections:

  • Free Theme

  • Colours of Violence

  • Short-Fun

  • Short-Maghreb: shorts from Mediterranean Africa

    After the on line registration you have to print and sign the pdf document of your shorts.

    Films have to be sent in a DVD (better if PAL), that will be used for the projection, so is required a good quality not-compressed movie.

    Films sent to the festival will not be sent back and will remain in the archives of the Festival and of the association LA DOMUS that will be allowed to use them (even in parts) for no profit initiatives.

    The technical panel, composed by expert and artists, the public and local media will assign their own prizes during the festival dates.

    Prizes will have to be taken by the author himself or a delegate, during the awarding night.

    Foreign authors that are not able to come to Latina are relieved from this condition.

    The prize will be sent to them later on (only for the foreign authors).

  • Best Italian Film € 700, assigned from technical panel to a short produced by an Italian producer

  • International Prize € 600, assigned from technical panel to a short produced by a foreign producer

  • Public Prize € 500, assigned from the public
