Festival start: 09 July 2021      Festival end: 18 July 2021

Fabriano Film Fest is an international short film festival.
Its 2020 edition was met with a vast critical and public acclaim, but above all had the merit of creating a warm, friendly, but also highly professional environment: both the selected short films, and the jury that took on the hard-going task of judging them, were of exceptional quality.
In 2021 we'll be together again for our ninth edition, most certainly, the "short film language" will still be the festival's highlight, with screenings of the films admitted to the competition taking place from July 9th to July 18th. We'll have seminars, castings and aperitivos, too! Sunday will be dedicated to the winning shorts and their authors, and of course to the awards ceremony!

Awards and special mentions:

- First prize for the best short film: 1.000 euro;
- Best short film Young Jury;
- Best comedy;
- Best director;
- Best actress;
- Best actor;
- Best cinematography;
- Best screenplay;
- Special award “Claudio Casadio Tarabusi” Eyes on the world;
- Audience choice award.
Besides technical sponsors provide some awards.

We will be accepting fiction and animated short films at the exhibition, of any subject. We do not accept documentaries, music videos or video art. Each director is allowed to participate with a maximum of two works, to be completed by 01/01/2018. Short films must have a maximum running time of 15 mins, excluding credits. Works already enrolled in other festivals are also accepted. Films of any origin or language are allowed. For all non-Italian films, Italian and/or english language subtitles will be required, plus the dialogue list in Italian and/or english.

The organization reserves the right to admit to the contest short films notwithstanding the current regulations.

By enrolling to the contest, each author declares himself/herself responsible for the content of his/her work. In case of failure to comply with these conditions the candidate will be excluded from the event. All entries that comply with the current regulation will be screened by the organizing commission, which, at it's sole discretion, will select participants of the contest to be presented to the award-assigning jury.

Submitted material will not be returned, and will be archived. It is possible that some material may be re-used in other events, as clips, for non-commercial use.

The selection of the admitted short films and the corresponding screening days will be communicated in good time on the following site:
www.fabrianofilmfest.it so as to allow the authors to be present at the screening and/or, eventually, at the awards ceremony.

The Jury, made up of Cinema professionals, will assign the awards and any special mentions. The Young Jury will also decide on the best film of the festival. There will also be a prize awarded by the public audience present at the screenings.

Personal data (L. 675/96) will be processed for the purposes of the festival only.

Registration for enrolment implies full acceptance of the current regulations. For any information not provided, the Italian Civil Code rules apply.
