The only way for a film to be selected at Ferrara Film Festival is with an official submission through FilmFreeway, or directly negotiated with the distribution companies. We select films of any genre and from any Country in the World, without any sort of discrimination. Here below our golden rules:
1) Accepted runtimes for Feature Films and Documentaries are: min 70 and max 160 minutes.
2) Accepted runtimes for Short Films are: min 3 and max 30 minutes.
3) Ferrara Film Festival does not pay any fee to screen films in our official program. We make no exceptions.
4) All films selected must be at least Italian premieres with some exceptions made if premiered in another major film festivals in Italy. No restrictions if the film took part of film festivals outside Italy.
5) A selected film must not have a public release (theatrical, streaming, online) prior to the current edition of Ferrara Film Festival (second half of September).
6) We select films that are completed only in the 12 months prior to our current festival edition.
