As Film Festival

International film and visual art festival managed by people with Asperger Syndrome.

About

AS FILM FESTIVAL (AsFF) is the first international film and visual art festival managed by people with Asperger Syndrome. It was born as a follow-up of a wider program, started up by Not Equal Association in 2008, and based on the idea of using cinema as a tool for social inclusion. AsFF is unique because it is not a festival about autism, but a film festival made by people with autism. For this reason (this is our claim) “it is equal to the others festivals, but different”.

  • PUNTI DI VISTA/POINTS OF VIEW

PUNTI DI VISTA/POINTS OF VIEW, a competitive section with free topic: the idea is to promote the art of filmmaking as a means to analyze and better comprehend one’s own perception of reality and related social issues; a very personal view and interpretation of the world and the everyday life; the eye of the camera used as a metaphorical canvas to tell one’s own story. There are no restrictions when it comes to both style and genre in this competition, although widely relatable narratives are going to be preferred for a final selection. All shorts made in the last year (starting from January 2016) can participate to the festival. All the films must not be longer than 20 minutes.

  • Earlybird Deadline — free

REASONABLY DIFFERENT is a not competitive section of the festival specifically dedicated to filmmakers affected by autism and/or to those films willing to expand on the difficult themes related to all sorts of cognitive impediments such as, but not only, Asperger syndrome. There aren’t going to be any limitations imposed by length, genre or technique.

  • Earlybird Deadline — free

ANIMATION NOW! is a competitive section of the festival specifically dedicated to Animation. All shorts made in the last year (starting from January 2016) can participate to the festival. All the films must not be longer than 15 minutes.
