Short films from all nations, either fiction, animation or documentary, completed after 31/12/2017, that explore fantastic cinema in its broadest sense and are addressed to an audience of young viewers aged between 6 and 19 years, highly educational and that effectively encourage both stylistic and thematic renewal of cinema, may participate in International Competitions for Short Films.

The five International Competitions and their five Juries are the Festival’s beating heart.
Each competition will have a Jury: the Visionaries. They will be organized as follows:
Visionaries +6 / Visionaries +9 / Visionaries +12 / Visionaries +16 / Visionaries +18
The International Competition is therefore divided into five categories grouped by age groups. All categories conceive and accept short and feature films, welcoming fiction, animation, documentary and also experimental works, with a greater concentration of shorts, mainly animated, for the Competitions intended for younger students (International Competition +6 and International Competition +9) and, as age increases, longer durations and a greater viariety of genres. Short and feature films are therefore numerically balanced starting from International Competition +12, whereas films of International Competition +16 and International Competition +18 increase in duration and variety, being always attributable to fantastic genre and all its declinations.
