Mission / description Born in 2011, Figari Film Fest is an event devoted to young and independent cinema, to short films, and to young directors’ debuts.

In June, for two weeks, Olbia and Gallura’s areas become the core of a cinematographic and cultural trend born to find, discover and foster new, Italian and foreign, independent and contemporary cinema authors. Our Festival, besides promoting international cinema, focuses on developing Sardinian film industry and promoting the island’s great heritage: its environment, its history, its culture.

The Figari Film Fest enjoys strong recognition by audiences and critics as well as by professionals. The festival boasts more than 2.000 spectators each year and hosts more than 100 between actors, producers and directors from all over the world.

The Official Competition will be between the best 25 movies over the 2.000 we’ll receive. Every night we’ll show a selection from the movies in front of our audience and our panel of experts, made from film industry’s professionals, which will pick the winners for every category. Every winner will get a plaque and a prize.
Your movie must be produced after 01.01.2016 and must be under 20 minutes length. (Credits included)

The call for submissions will be open from 08.02. 2017

It is possible to submit your movie to FilmFreeway and Shortfilmdepot in Figari Film Fest’s page.

Travelling attended with Mutants in 2017

One of our film won awards at Figari last last year and though they promised us to send them over, we received nothing. We wrote them months later they said it was coming, it never came. In the end, they tried to make us feel guilty to ask for these awards that we won. It's been 9 months now and I think we'll never receive what the festival promised. We've been distributing shorts for the past 10 years. Manage over 600 selections and dozens of awards every year. It's the first time we ever had an experience like that. It's a shame. There is plenty of great film festivals in Italy, this one ain't. Don't believe the hype. Alexandre Around 2 years ago
