The Roman Road Via XIV crosses the Támega River Valley for over 2000 years. Almost diffused today, it was replaced by the current communication routes that cross our valley... some of them built over the Roman Via itself, others along old roads.

Throughout this time, ancient ways were the catalyst in the transmission of culture and in the expansion of Roman civilization; they were the path of new ideas, progress and communication between peoples.

The International Short Film Festival Via XIV wants to continue with this path of culture, attracting the eyes of creators from all over the world to the town of Verín. The role of shorts in cinema is fundamental as an axis of expression, but also as a tannery of new values that find in the limitation of short story a positive tension to condense the ability to narrate, express and transmit it in a audiovisual work.

Promotional card of Oldenburg International Film Festival

In 2021, “The Biggest Little Fest In Europe” was heralded as "One of the World's Leading Indie Film Fests"- The Hollywood Reporter

Rated among the top 5 Film Festivals worldwide for Independent Films by American film critic Chris Gore in his esteemed “Ultimate Film Festival Guide”, and ranked “Top 25 Coolest Festivals in the World” by MovieMaker, Oldenburg has fostered its success with a strong commitment to innovative and Independent filmmaking.

“If there's anything that could be considered the Promised Land of Independent Cinema in Europe today, it is Oldenburg.” - Accred - L'actualité des festivals de cinéma

Labelled ‘the German Sundance’ by Variety, Hollywood Reporter, and Screen International, amongst others, Oldenburg has evolved while preserving its intimate atmosphere and founding purpose: to celebrate and support the diverse voices and visions of independent filmmakers, to honor the creativity of the artists upon which the Festival depends, and to create a unique experience and inspiring meeting place for filmmakers, audiences, and media professionals.

“Oldenburg - renown for its determination, cinephilia, and openness for the extremes - impresses with its brilliant programming.” - GRIP

Additionally, in an effort to raise awareness and build bridges between worlds through the common language of film, Oldenburg is the only Film Festival in the world that annually screens part of its regular program to incarcerated individuals who share the experience with members of the general public in an actual high-security Prison environment, known as ‘The Alcatraz of the North’.

“Oldenburg thrives as a discovery channel.” - Screen International

In addition to supporting the discovery of new artists, Oldenburg has hosted the German Premieres of films by such acclaimed filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brian De Palma, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Polish, Johnnie To, Chan-wook Park, Monte Hellmann, & Takeshi Kitano amongst others. Guests of honor have included Jim McBride, Larry Clark, Philippe de Broca, Andrzej Zulawski, Ken Russell, Jerry Schatzberg, James Toback, Radley Metzger, Ted Kotcheff, Phedon Papmichael, George Armitage, Christophe Honoré, Edward R. Pressman, Bruce Robinson, William Freidkin & Ovidio Assonitis who have all attended the festival for Retrospectives of their work.

“Just as impressive as the films was the festival itself, which, under the inspired direction of Torsten Neumann, combined intelligent cinephilia with a laid-back atmosphere of democratic equality.” - Sight and Sound

Nicolas Cage, Seymour Cassel, Asia Argento, Keira Knightley, Deborah Kara Unger, Mira Sorvino, Bobcat Goldthwait, Michael Wadleigh, Joanna Cassidy, Luke Wilson, Ben Gazzara, Stacy Keach, Amanda Plummer, Keith Carradine, Matthew Modine, Sean Baker, Mattie Do & Noémie Merlant are amongst many who have attended as honored guests or for Tributes in their honor.

“Alongside Venice and Toronto, Oldenburg is considered one of the most important Autumn Festivals for Independent Cinema” - de Telegraaf

Rated #1 in Germany on The Most Important Autumn Film Festivals List for and by the German Film Industry (Blickpunkt Film), and #3 internationally after Venice & TIFF, Oldenburg is regarded as “one of the most important European festivals for independent cinema" (Tagesschau).

“Oldenburg is a pilgrimage for cineastes.”- Die Zeit

Do Ut Des Film Festival

Logo of Do Ut Des Film Festival

Deadline
10 Apr 2022


Published: 19 Dec 2021
 Has submission fees
Short films


What is Do Ut Des Film Festival? Who is it for? Why this name?

Let's go in order...

First of all, Do Ut Des Film Festival is a fantastic container of short cinema; we are open to short films from all over the world (as long as they are produced starting from January 2019), whose finalists - selected by us in collaboration with Sentiero Film Factory - this year will become part of two "special categories" whitin the SFF 2022 (here for submit: https://filmmakers.festhome.com/festival/6635):

- MUSIC IN SHORT (video clips, experimental videos in which the images interact directly with the music are allowed)

- REMIX CULTURE_BALTIC'S WAY (includes films dedicated to the cultural exchange between Italy and the Rest of the World; this year the focus will be on Baltic Countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania)


Do Ut Des Film Festival is not just a nice word pun, but it wants - first of all - to overturn the negative stereotype linked to the Latin phrase "do ut des": an expression often used to indicate the ancient - how not very edifying - practice of "exchange’s vote" within politics and institutions in general ... Is it a provocation? Maybe yes, but the only thing we are interested in trading here are your visionary talent and our ability to highlight and reward it as it deserves and then - why not – mixing different cultures and styles, because cinema is beautiful also because it is varied. Furthermore, since we are in Tuscany, we could not fail to pay homage to one of the characters who made the history of music for being the inventor of the tetragrammaton (at the root of the current stave), namely Guido d'Arezzo; who was the first in the year 1025 to line up all the notes of the musical scale starting from the UT latin sound (what we now know as C).

In short, Do Ut Des Film Festival is all this and more! We hope you will want to discover it with us by attending us in this new exciting adventure, exchanging good cinema and showing your many and fascinating visions of the world. We are waiting for you!
