Torino Short Film Market

Turin, from the 18th to the 20th of November 2016

The Italian Short Film Center is happy to announce the first Torino Short Film Market. Organised with the collaboration of the Torino Film Festival and the support of the Film Commission Torino Piemonte, it will take place on the first weekend of the Torino Film Festival on the 18th, 19th and 20th of November 2016 in Turin.

During three days, the Torino Short Film Market accredited will have the possibility to access to the Short Film Video Library curated by Enrico Vannucci and Massimo Nardulli, and will have the opportunity to participate to several workshops and meetings. The program will be available soon.

In this occasion, the Italian Short Film Center is launching two international calls:

OLTRECORTO – a call for feature film, TV series, digital and gaming projects that are a development of an already produced short film. The short films and projects will be presented during a pitch to an audience of producers and broadcasters who are searching for talent with the aim of creating a bridge between the world of short films and that of production. The call is open to directors and writers of any age and country who have produced a short film and would like to have it evolve into a feature film, TV series, digital or even a game. The selected project will be represented during the pitch by the director or screenwriter who must be the same individual for both the short film and the project. The Torino Short Film Market will take care of the travel expenses and hospitality (two nights) for one representative of every single project.

DISTRIBUTORS – a presentation of catalogs of short films from distributors to potential international TV buyers in the form of pitches. The call is open to distributors of any country who have a catalog – national or international – of short films of up to 30 minutes in length to be presented to potential TV and web buyers. Each distributor will have 10 minutes of time to present their catalog. The Torino Short Film Market will take care of the hospitality (two nights) for one representative of each distribution company. Reimbursement of travel expenses for distributors is not expected.

The deadline for the delivery of the works and projects is September 30, 2016.
