About The Festival

Spello International Short film Festival invites you to submit your films for the 2st edition of the Festival, taking place 23  February – 03 March 2019 in Spello (Italy).

Spello is a wonderful old medieval village with amazing history, art, tradition, nature, food and wine, in the beautiful Italian region of Umbria.
Spello is placed in the centre of Italian area between Florence, Perugia and Rome.

The Festival is characterized because it rewards the best professions who work behind the scenes to make a film. The jury will decide the winners by evaluating overall the various processes and professions who participated, especially the script, the cinematography, the costumes, set design, makeup, sound, music.

…… a film finishes and everyone stands up to leave the screening room, the film credits are however still being shown, and in doing so the immense work by those professionals, who contributed to the making of the film with passion and professionalism, is overlooked.  How much hard work and sacrifice has been involved? Who are these people behind the scenes?

For this reason il Festival del Cinema Città di Spello ed I Borghi Umbri – “RASSEGNA CONCORSO LE PROFESSIONI DEL CINEMA“, was established in 2012; dedicated to those professionals behind the scenes of cinema:
