The Festival was born with a very specific mission: it aims to stimulate public attention towards an open and wide representative space, such as the rural environment, makes its outdoor projections, open to all, the best exponent. Youth and adults, generations separated by years and experiences, gather around a screen, which is the focus of the light of a past and a future: culture is timeless, culture unites, and film language will be the link common to temper emotions and feelings, to treasure memories, to provoke lively gatherings.

In this way, all attendees of the event can enjoy a heterogeneous and dynamic speech. Through this cultural impulse, the different currents of creativity allow viewers to move and explore new and old codes in a public space, creating community.


All the winners will be awarded the statuette symbol of the contest: the 'Moon' of the festival.

The short films participating in the competition section will be eligible for the following prizes depending on the categories:

Best Fiction Short Film
Best Economic Experimental Short Film
Best Rural Short Film

Best Short Film Guest Country / Guest City Special Mention

Note that the prize for the best rural short film will be awarded by the public attending the screenings. The calculation will be done by adding the votes of each short film and taking the percentage in relation to all the attendees.
