You can enter works (short films, cartoons, video clips, cell phone videos, photo presentations and any other types of work of the audiovisual category)which have not been entered in the previous editions made in any format and technique that does not exceed 10 minutes (the organizers of the festival reserve the right to admit slightly longer works as well) of comic- humoristic genre.

For foreign works subtitles either in english or Italian are required.

The works will have to be sent along with an entry form (with a copy of a valid identity card attached ) and all the other information required to the following address:

- to agree to the treatment of personal data

- to agree to the use of the short film and the original and not original soundtrack of the film

It is possible to participate with more than one work.

All of the works that reach us within the deadline will be viewed and selected by a committee made of organizers and experts from creative industries.

The works which get picked out will be let to the official selection and evaluated by a jury of quality, notified on festival’s web site. The jury will award prizes as follows.
