International short film festival.


MoliseCinema is a film festival whose main aim is to claim “the right to enjoy Cinema” in the
small towns, through the promotion of the latest and most innovative works of Italian and
international cinema.

A special attention is given to young Italian, European and international filmmakers, to innovative projects and new ways of expression, and to films dealing with the themes of cross-cultural interactions between peoples, cultural and social identity in a community and life in small villages.


The awards, which will include prize money in proportion to the Festival yearly budget, are as follows: 

  • Villages in Short: Best international short film award (named after Carlo Montuori) 
  • Routes: Best Italian short film award
  • Frontiers: Best documentary film award (named after Giusepper Folchi) 
  • Villages in Features: Best feature film audience award

Special prizes and mentions will be decided at the juries’ discretion.


  • Films of all genres that do not exceed 20 minutes and were released after 1st January, 2019, may be submitted for preselection.
