We seek and promote talented filmmakers.
We fully appreciate the ability to express a vision of the world by using the particular characteristics of the cinematographic medium. We value cinema as an instrument of knowledge. This means that even a film with poor economic and technical means can be presented.

We are a brand new montly online festival
For the start-up period, i.e. until January 31, 2022 our entry fees are:
Submit a Short Film or Doc (Under 40 Min) – Euro 15
Submit a Feature Film or Doc (Over 40 Min) – Euro 25

Montly selection and screening

We select some films every month.
There is no fixed number of selected films. It depends on their quality.
All the films selected in a month will be screened at our headquarters in Venice (Italy) at least once and in front of a real audience.
Once a year we organize a festival that rewards some films chosen from those selected in the previous months. The festival will be held on the Lido of Venice in July.

We publish the selected films on this site and …

  • carry out in-depth interviews with the authors
  • Translate the interviews into Italian.
  • Put your film in CP Vimeo Collection .
  • Publish them on Facebook and Instagram.
  • Include them in our Newsletter.
  • You can also have a free waiver for the Venice Intercultural Fim Festival (VIFF)   if your film fits its selection criteria.

Genres, length, release date, exclusivity

  • Any genre is fine, we’ll take care of classifying the movies.
  • It doesn’t need to be recent.
  • If your film is participating in other festivals or reviews is fine, we do not ask for exclusivity.
  • In other words, what matters is the “internal” quality of the film: the ideas it expresses and how they are expressed.

How does it work ?

  • We watch and rate all the movies you send us.
  • We publish and promote only a selected part of the films received.
  • We must have the explicit permission of the owner of the rights to publish the films on our websites.
  • The registration fees are used to pay for the work of vision, evaluation, promotion of the selected films, and interviews with the authors.
  • For this reason, membership fees cannot be returned and they do not provide vouchers for a free membership.

Note that:

  • We prefer full-view films.
  • For longer films, a good trailer will suffice.
  • We will make arrangements on this, case by case.
  • All films must have English subtitles.
  • English spoken films must also have English subtitles.
  • You can add subtitles after having been selected.
  • We can make Italian subtitles upon your request.
