The event, to be held in Trieste July 1 – 9, 2022 opens submissions to its 23 rd edition
Submissions to the 23rd edition of ShorTS International Film Festival, the well-established film event organised by Associazione Maremetraggio and scheduled from July 1st to 9th, 2022 in Trieste, are now open.
The festival confirms its competitive key sections dedicated to short films such as Maremetraggio, Shorter Kids’n’Teens and ShorTS Virtual Reality. For its 2022 edition the festival also confirms the Last Chance section for short films of any genre, which have been produced after January 2021 and with a maximum length of 10 minutes, which have not been awarded any prize yet. A maximum of 10 films will be included in the Maremetraggio section.
The long-established competitive section Maremetraggio is reserved to short films which have already been awarded at one or more international film festivals during 2021. The 5.000,00 Euro (five thousand euro) prize for the Best Short Film has been confirmed, as well as the 3.000,00 Euro (three thousand euro) cash prize for the Best Italian Short Film added for the first time last year. Furthermore, all short films enrolled in this section will be competing for additional prestigious awards.
The ShorTS Virtual Reality Section, entirely dedicated to international short films produced in virtual reality, together with the 2.000,00 (two thousand euro) cash prize which will be awarded to the Best Virtual Reality Short, have been confirmed also for this 23rd edition.
Lastly, also the Shorter Kids’n’Teens section, dedicated to short films of any genre for the very young, is confirmed. This year again the section is going to be divided into two age groups, with two separate selection committees and two juries made up by the youngsters themselves: the Kids section, dedicated to shorts for children aged 6 to 10, and the Teens section launched for teenagers aged 11 to 15.
